The end of days can be funny, and not in a “I’m high as hell and keep nudging my buddy cause 2012 is so amazingly awful” type of way. Like Kevin Smith‘s Dogma, only…funny.

Rapture-Palooza, after having signed the always-awesome Craig Robinson, is in talks with Anna Kendrick and John Francis Daly to jump aboard as well. Kendrick you probably know from her Oscar-nominated turn in Up in the Air, and John Francis Daly you probably don’t know from “Freaks and Geeks” and “Bones.”

The fact that Rapture-Palooza could score anyone of note, even a “Bones” actor, is pretty amazing given that it will have a production budget of less than $2MM. The film, described as “Zombieland meets The Big Lebowski” is written by Chris Matheson and is helmed by lauded commercial director Paul Middleditch.

Regardless of how the movie turns out, if they aren’t able to get a $2MM return on this guy, the producers should be drawn and quartered in front of Spago. (THR)

Steve Carell Wants To Be a Rock Star In ‘Of All The Things’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/steve-carell-wants-to-be-a-rock-star-in-of-all-the-things/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/steve-carell-wants-to-be-a-rock-star-in-of-all-the-things/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Steve Carell has hired writers John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein to turn him into a rock star. Of All The Things will be based on the 2008 documentary of the same name that "told the story of how songwriter/producer Dennis Lambert achieved rock star status late in life when he went on a singing tour of the Philippines, and discovered he was to Filipinos what Jerry Lewis is to the French." The Hasselhoff to Germans would have been a more impressive comparison.  This is just one of twenty-million projects Carell is currently attached to. He previously hired Daley and Goldstein to write Burt Wonderstone, in which he'd play a magician who kills his performing partner and tries to rebound. With all this rock star and magician talk, you'd think Carell would just put on a live show already instead of wasting time on all these talkies. I'd rather spend a romantic evening under the stars with him singing "Rhinestone Cowboy" and "Baby Come Back" instead of sitting in a stuffy theater watching him portray the guy who wrote those hits. Bill Silva, let's make this event happen. You can shout me on my Sidekick. (Deadline)
