The Hollywood Reporter Unveils Comedy Class of 2013
How funny is Hamburg? So funny, he even found a way to punch up Mark Boal's Zero Dark Thirty (see below).
Hamburg, 42, and Fox, 36, sit at the top of the rewriter heap: Rom-com queen Fox (at work on the Drew Barrymore starrer How to Be Single) commands $250,000 a week for a production rewrite, the high-pressure, time-sensitive work of doctoring a greenlighted script; Hamburg, who specializes in neurotic male-led comedies (including Night at the Museum), also gets $250,000 and up.
