“Great news for Greg Mottola: Superbad, the greatest film since the invention of the motion camera, looks to be box-office smash. The bad news: Everyone thinks Judd Apatow directed it.
“‘Some of my friends said I should get a publicist just to tell people that I directed the movie, because I’m not getting any credit,’ Mottola told us yesterday. ‘It was just surreal at Comic-Con in San Diego. I was on the panel, but all the questions were going to Judd. But he was very quick to let the fanboys know who directed the movie and that he was hands-off for most of the shoot.'” — from a New York magazine “Vulture” item by Steve Ramos.
