The Super Troopers guys are known for their high-concept stoner work so far, having put together the aforementioned Super Troopers, Beerfest, Club Dread, and all that jazz. But now they’re taking things a little more domestic with Quality Time, a pilot they’re preparing for TBS.

The show will feature fictionalized versions of the Broken Lizard (their comedy troupe) members’ lives.

Before you get too excited (I sensed you were getting excited) you should know that perhaps the most prominent member of the troupe, Jay Chandrasekhar, will not be joining them. He’s enjoyed a pretty strong career directing comedy in television, so he doesn’t have time for this crap. Just kidding. He will most likely be directing much of the effort, as he’s directed all of their films to date.

It sounds promising, since these guys will probably offer up a take on adulthood that you won’t get from Modern Family or the like.

UPDATE: Variety now reports that they made a boo-boo. Olivia Munn is starring in a film entitled Babymakers, and it does NOT involved the Broken Lizard crew.

Olivia MunnThe Daily Show“,”Attack of the Show“) is going from Aaron Sorkin‘s sure-to-be-classy HBO pilot to comedy troupe Broken Lizard‘s sure-to-be-Broken-Lizardy new movie. Maybe this new project will find a way to re-team her with that Slave Leia costume. Hopefully, the Sorkin pilot will, too.

Paul Schneider has steadily built his career up in critically-lauded projects like All The Real Girls, The Assassination Of Jesse James By The Coward Robert Ford, Lars and the Real Girl, Bright Star,”Parks and Recreation,” and Water For Elephants. Naturally, he’s poised to take on more lead roles and the next project in his burgeoning career is… Broken Lizard’s The Baby Makers.

- record scratch -

“Whhuuuhhhttt?”

Grand Juror at Cannes loses his monocle in shock while his heavyset wife faints.

That’s right Paul Schneider will next be seen playing a dude having trouble conceiving a child with his wife, so he recruits the Broken Lizard crew to help rob the sperm bank where he left some jizz many years ago. Watch your back, Jason Bateman. Your unique brand of ejaculate-based comedy is being coopted. (Variety)

Johnny Knoxville Is Totally Not A ‘Stooge’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/johnny-knoxville-is-totally-not-a-stooge/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/johnny-knoxville-is-totally-not-a-stooge/#comments Wed, 16 Mar 2011 03:38:47 +0000 Geoffrey Golden http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=201859 The 'Jackass' star has backed out of the Farrelly Brothers' reboot of 'The Three Stooges', but may become an official mustache rider instead.

If you believed the credible The Three Stooges, then the real “stooges” are you and I, my  friend. The real stooges… are you and I.

Knoxville was considering the role, but wisely backed away before serious negotiations took place. Unlike the Farrelly’s, Knoxville has made several hit movies in the past decade, though both their filmographies include movies about bad things happening to dudes’ balls. I’m guessing Hall Pass was Knoxville’s pass out of Stoogeland. So that leaves the gross out brothers with three roles to fill, rather than two.

Knoxville is eyeing other projects, including a merging of the Jackass and Broken Lizard crews in a film amazingly titled Mustache Riders. He’s also producing, and possibly starring in, a movie about a man whose wife runs for president. It has the less amazing title of First Man and will be written/directed by Max Winkler.

‘The Slammin’ Salmon’ Salmon Chowder Eating Contest Happened http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-slammin-salmon-salmon-chowder-eating-contest-happened/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/the-slammin-salmon-salmon-chowder-eating-contest-happened/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 In an effort to promote their new movie, The Slammin' Salmon, the Broken Lizard gang held a salmon chowder eating contest at City Crab & Seafood in New York City. Gluton Bob Shoudt broke the Major League Eating capacity record after eating 2.4 gallons and more than 24 pounds of chowder in 6-minutes. A disgusted and bewildered Michael Clarke Duncan served as guest judge and the Broken Lizards were amateur coaches at the Major League Eating contest. Eater X, Badlands Booker, Crazy Legs Conti and Allen "Shredder" Goldstein competed along with amateur hopefuls. I threw up in my mouth. Never have I seen so much stewed oil, cream, and fish shoveled into an orifice. I hope everyone at this contest felt very bad about themselves after. The human body isn't meant to tolerate so much thick, white liquid. Hence the stomach pump.
