Writer/Director Paul Weitz (left) attended the festival in 2003 along with his brother Chris Weitz (right). His new film, American Dreamz, opens later this month, and is the second film Paul has done without his brother Chris (the first being In Good Company) as a writing and/or directing team (Chris was, however, a producer on both films) . Together, they wrote and directed About a Boy and wrote the script for Antz, among other films. Chris also played the part of “Chuck” in the Mike White penned Chuck and Buck.
