First Thursdays returns December 1st with Stranger Than Fiction

A mentally unstable IRS auditor (Will Ferrell) hears an author’s (Emma Thompson) voice in his head and discovers that he is the ill-fated protagonist of her latest work. While a book-company employee (Queen Latifah) tries to cure the author’s case of writer’s block, the auditor and a professor (Dustin Hoffman) set out to find the woman and make her change her story.
