“Freaks and Geeks” creator Paul Feig wrote a scene for “The Amazing Spider-Man”

"The Amazing Spider-Man"

Posted by on

Paul Feig might be busy writing the screenplay for his upcoming movie “Untouchable,” set to star Colin Firth, but that doesn’t mean that he’s not willing to take out some time and help an old friend.

That’s exactly what he did for Marc Webb on the set of “The Amazing Spider-Man,” according to Vulture. During an interview at the Tribeca Film Festival, Feig admitted that not only has he visited Webb while he was filming the upcoming Sony movie, but he also wrote a scene in the film.

“He’s a great guy, he invited me on set, and I did a little bit of writing for that movie, for one of the high school scenes, so I’m excited,” he said.

As anyone who’s watched IFC knows, Feig is a bit of an expert when it comes to writing for teens. “Freaks and Geeks” certainly shows that he understands how the teenage brain works, and hopefully some of that comes across in “The Amazing Spider-Man.” We likely won’t find out what scene Feig wrote until after the flick comes out, but hopefully we’ll be able to tell just by watching the movie. There will be plenty of scenes to choose from, as this take on Peter Parker’s origin story stays in his high school years.

“The Amazing Spider-Man” focuses on Peter Parker’s journey to discover the secret of his parents’ early death. That brings him face-to-face with Dr. Curt Conners, who ends up becoming the film’s villain, The Lizard. It stars Andrew Garfield, Emma Stone, Martin Sheen, Rhys Ifans, Sally Field and Denis Leary and is due in theaters on July 3.

Your Portlandia Personality Test

The New Portlandia Webseries Is Going Your Way

Posted by on

Carrie and Fred understand that although we have so much in common, we’re each so beautifully unique and different. To help us navigate those differences, Portlandia has found an easy and honest way to embrace our special selves in the form of a progressive new traffic system: a specific lane for every kind of driver. It’s all in honor of the show’s 8th and final season, and it’s all presented by Subaru.

Ready to find out who you really are? Match your personality to a lane and hop on the expressway to self-understanding.

Lane 10: Trucks Piled With Junk

Your junk is falling out of your trunk. Shake a tail light, people — this lane is for you.

Lane 33: Twins

You’re like a Gemini, but waaaay more pedestrian. Maybe you and a friend just wear the same outfits a lot. Who cares, it’s just twinning enough to make you feel special.

Lane 27: Broken Windows

Bad luck follows you around and everyone knows it. Your proverbial seat is always damp from proverbial rain. Is this the universe telling you to swallow your pride? Yes.

Lane 69: Filthy Cars

You’re all about convenience. Getting your car washed while you drive is a no-brainer.

Lane 43: Newly Divorced Singles

It’s been a while since you’ve driven alone, and you don’t know the rules of the road anymore. What’s too fast? What’s too slow? Are you sending the right signals? Don’t worry, the breakdown lane is nearby if you need it.

Still can’t find a lane to match your personality? Check out all the videos here. And see the final season of Portlandia this spring on IFC.
