COMIC-CON 2011 Memo #7: Jeffrey Brown

It was at Comic-Con that news of a movie based on the work of cartoonist Jeffrey Brown has caught on.

Well, it won’t be another “Scott Pilgrim” as far as having a studio spend $60 million only to make $30 million at the box office.

This is the logline for “Save the Date”: “a comedy centered on two very different sisters.” That seems to add up to, from what I can tell, an indie movie with an indie budget and perhaps aspirations to being a new generation’s answer to the Woody Allen classic, “Hannah and Her Sisters,” a comedy-drama centered on three very different sisters. Well, maybe something sort of like that.

It is really cool to see this come about. “Save The Date” stars Lizzy Caplan (“Cloverfield”) and Alison Brie (“Mad Men”).
