Don’t you hate how there aren’t any good comedies set in the colonial period? Yeah, you do. Even if you didn’t even know you did. AMC sure does, and that’s (presumably) why they’re stepping out with We Hate Paul Revere, one such comedy that follows two guys who sure do hate Paul Revere.

Of course, it would have been fairly predictable for AMC to cast some d-bag in the role of Paul Revere, like one of the Workaholics, or maybe Ed Helms. Nope. They got one of the more likable people in the world, Ron Livingston, to play Paul Revere.

Why do those two guys hate Paul Revere so much? Especially if he’s played by affable everyman Ron Livingston? Maybe they’re jerks. Or maybe Paul Revere is a jerk. Sometimes people just don’t get along. It’s not necessarily a testament to their personalities. Whatever.

Just watch the show. It’s rare that networks take such a high-concept risk that doesn’t sound stupid right off the back. With any luck, we’ll ALL be hating Paul Revere for years to come.

Johnny Depp Pitching Paul Revere, ‘Night Stalker’ Projects To Disney http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/johnny-depp-pitching-paul-revere-night-stalker-projects-to-disney/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/johnny-depp-pitching-paul-revere-night-stalker-projects-to-disney/#comments Tue, 12 Jul 2011 00:51:06 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=219769 It sounds as though, based on these selections, we are beginning to see the resurrection of "weirdo Johnny Depp." Welcome back, old friend.

I guess that $350 million that Johnny Depp has scored from the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise affords him the opportunity to pitch a couple bizarre projects. And they have to listen, because he’s Johnny Depp and he’s starring in pretty much every live-action Disney film being cranked out these days.

Depp’s production company Infinitum Nihil (really pretentious name or MOST PRETENTIOUS NAME EVER?) is pitching to Disney a reboot of the made-for-TV 1970′s movie The Night Stalker, in which Depp would presumably play fictional journalist Carl Kolchak, who would break cases, several of which involved the supernatural.

The second project is a film about Paul Revere. More specifically, it’s about his midnight ride warning the colonists that the British were coming. The guys behind Batman Forever are writing the script. (Cue sad tuba music.)

While nothing has been set here, it sounds like Disney is very interested in both these projects, probably because Johnny Depp is interested in them. We got the Rum Diaries, The Lone Ranger, and possibly Pirates 5 up first, though. (Deadline)
