Vaunted cinema auteur Rob Reiner has decided on what his next masterpiece to hit theaters will be: Originally titled The Third Act, the film is now Summer at Dog Dave’s, which, let’s face it, is a pretty hilarious title. Anyway, Virginia Madsen and Kenan Thompson are in talks to appear in coveted roles in the movie, which is also set to star Morgan Freeman. Here’s a plot synopsis, sure to be analyzed by cinephiles and historians for years to come:

“Freeman stars as a wheelchair-bound author of Western novels whose alcoholism is making him lose his passion for writing. Madsen will play his new neighbor, a single mother going through a divorce who has three daughters. The family strikes up a relationship with the novelist and helps him rediscover his talent and find his passion for writing again.”

Madsen is stepping in for Annette Benning, who was originally set to play the female lead. Thompson will be playing Freeman’s “helpful nephew,” which should be good for a few laughs. (Variety)

Kenan Thompson has been picked as the next star of a Lorne Michaels‘ produced film featuring SNL players. He’s in luck, too, cause these things always do really well. My family still gathers around the tube everything Thanksgiving to watch It’s Pat: The Movie, so this news has special meaning to me. In case you were wondering, we toss in Coneheads at Christmas.

It’s unlikely that this film will feature a Good Burger reunion with his good friend Kel, which is unfortunate, because Kel could probably use the work. While no plot details are available, we are able to glean everything we need to know from the title: Party Starters. One can safely assume that in much the same manner that Owen Wilson and Vince Vaughn crashed weddings, Kenan and someone else (Elijah Wood?) will start parties. Sounds like a “can miss” premise to me! (Deadline)
