“Kung Fool!” In a casting decision undoubtedly made to set the Internet on fire, that guy David Hasselhoff will star in Beverly Hills Ninja 2, the sequel to Chris Farley’s 1997 contribution to the fat joke. Apparently the sequel will be a theatrical release from Sony. It wasn’t confirmed whether Hoff will play the titular throwing star handler. Mitchell Klebenoff, who scribed the original as well as the 1987 Fatboys’ pill party, Disorderlies, will shoot the film primarily in South Korea, where no mainstream Hollywood production has gone before. Excited?

David Spade didn’t co-star in the original Ninja (Chris Rock did the honor), but I’m killing two clipped birds with one dull stone. Spade will star in the would-be comedy, Divorced Guys, for director Fred Wolf, who’s coming off the Happy Madison sleeper hit The House Bunny. Wolf also wrote Joe Dirt, Black Sheep and Dirty Work (Norm, we need you). They co-wrote the script with actor-writer Kevin Farley, Chris Farley’s younger brother, and the plot centers on a “group of divorced guys who go on a road trip to figure out why their marriages failed and stumble into a series of comic mishaps.” Sounds like Wild Hogs humped today’s Hangover in the name of friendship.

David Zucker’s An American Carol Movie Trailer

Fox News has the trailer for David Zucker‘s new political comedy An American Carol. This looks like a higher budget version of Uwe Boll’s Postal, which is sad since Zucker was once the mastermind behind Airplane! Tell me what you think in the comments below!

An American Carol is a comic retelling of A Christmas Carol, but instead of Ebenezer Scrooge, we have a cynical, anti-American documentary filmmaker named Michael Malone (extremely subtle), who sets out on a crusade to abolish the July Fourth holiday with his film Die You American Pigs. On the fourth of July, he is visited by three ghosts who tey to show him the meaning of Independence, instead of Christmas. Chris Farley’s brother Kevin Farley stars as the filmmaker, alongside Kelsey Grammer as General Patton, Jon Voight as General Washington, Leslie Nielsen as himself, Bill O’ Reilly as himself, Dennis Hopper, and James Woods. Vivendi Entertainment is releasing the film on 2000 screens on October 3rd 2008.

Vivendi Entertainment picked up the U.S. rights to David Zucker‘s new comedy An American Carol. Imagine for a moment, a retelling of A Christmas Carol, but instead of Ebenezer Scrooge, we have a cynical, anti-American documentary filmmaker unsubtlely named Michael Malone, who sets out on a crusade to abolish the July Fourth holiday with his film Die You American Pigs. On the fourth of July, he is visited by three ghosts who tey to show him the meaning of Independence, instead of Christmas. If you were a Hollywood studio executive, and heard this pitch, would you greenlight the film?

Zucker is known as the mastermind behind Airplane! and the Naked Gun films, but also the last two Scary Movie films. Chris Farley’s brother Kevin Farley stars as the filmmaker, alongside Kelsey Grammer seen above as General Patton, next to Jon Voight as General Washington. Also, Leslie Nielsen as himself, Bill O’ Reilly as himself, Dennis Hopper, and James Woods. Call me a liberal, but this just sounds lame.
