He brought it to the attention of Universal Studios who initially declined but subsequently optioned the rights to the film in I think the film is fantastic, and I can't imagine a screenwriter being any happier with a film unless he directs it himself.
Which, in this case, would've been a disaster since Jay is a brilliant director He initially presented it to Roach who had, up to that point, directed the first two Austin Powers films. Roach admits to have liked the script from the beginning  and was very much willing to make the film even though he thought "it needed more work.
The studio was skeptical of Roach's ability to direct a "less-cartoony, character-driven script" compared to a comedy like Austin Powers.

Explaining how Ben Stiller came to be cast in the role of Greg, Roach states: The film's script was initially written with Jim Carrey in the role of Greg and contained much more physical comedy, something that Stiller did not think would be successful with himself playing the role. She ultimately lost the role to Teri Polo because the filmmakers "didn't think [Watts] was sexy enough".

Of course I have love in my dancing, on the stage. But still I have too much love to give. I was deeply appreciative, I love kids. So I have no problem adopting. When she adopted her first child, Leo, now 10, her mother was there to help look after him.
And the family was soon joined by Vivian and Julian, now 8 and 7, respectively. In an interview on CNN, Jin said: In one decade I became very family-oriented.
No more wild party girl. What adds more flavour to this apparently fairytale story, is how open and confident Jin appears to be about her past and the nature of her parenthood, sexuality, gender, and family. Chinese Dating has been slammed by critics both within and beyond China as a revival of outdated arranged marriages.
A still from the show 'Chinese Dating' with subtitles by Resonate resonatevoices. In the book, Zhihong attributes the psychological and social problems in contemporary China to collectivism and blind filial piety.
Subsequently, the single child often appears to be overly self-centred and dependent on family support, and often suffers from paranoia and insecurity.
People born in the s share a collective anxiety as they once experienced great social instability. Therefore, Sun says, they hate the uncertainty of the future and are afraid that their children would pick the wrong person to marry.
This attitude might go some way to explain why Jin Xing, someone who has been considered a progressive figure of family and gender in China and abroad, would agree to host a show that brands itself with conservative and reactionary gender and family values.

A recent study from the UK has shown how feminism has failed working-class women in Britain by focusing too much on gender equality in high-profile roles. The break the glass ceiling approach that simply promotes women in the boardroom has not been as successful in changing family-friendly working culture or providing opportunities for other women to advance.
Gender still has a strong independent impact on women's earnings prospects — but class, education and occupational backgrounds are stronger determinants of a woman's progression and earnings prospects. It takes time and effort for any changes concerning social issues to occur, and we tend to focus on, and even glorify and glamourize, key figures who are seen as leading progressive movements or representing a recognised agenda.
