Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim — the loons behind The Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! — only just announced that they had written and were beginning to direct their first feature film, Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie. The picture reportedly features the talents of Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Robert Loggia, Jeff Goldblum, Will Forte and William Atherton.
Now the film already has a distributor, as Magnolia has officially (confirming the report linked above) come aboard to put this most expensive movie project in front of the eyeballs of willing suckers everywhere. Read More »
We reported on this rumor a few weeks ago but now it turns out to be true. Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim have co-written and will co-direct a film called Tim and Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie which stars the two comedians, best known for their recently ended Cartoon Network show Tim and Eric Awesome Show Great Job, in story about them making a movie for $1 billion dollars and the problems that arise from it. In addition to Heidecker and Wareheim, the film will feature Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Robert Loggia, Jeff Goldblum, Will Forte and William Atherton.

Vivendi Games has made a deal with Sony Pictures to rape your childhood and turn Ghostbusters into a video game. Vivendi, who is eyeing a potential franchise, plans to release the game in fall 2008. The good news is that all four original cast members, Dan Aykroyd, Ernie Hudson, Bill Murray and Harold Ramis, have signed on to give their voice and likeness for the game. William Atherton, Brian Doyle Murray and Annie Potts are also on board.
The best part is that Ghostbusters screenwriters Aykroyd & Ramis are also signed on to write the game’s story, which will take place a new ghoul invasion of New York City in the early 1990’s (following Ghostbusters II on the timeline).
Variety reports that developer Terminal Reality (BlowOut, BloodRayne) is making a Ghostbusters game for PC, Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 aimed primarily at the core gamer demographic, while Red Fly Studios is making a version for Playstation 2, Wii and DS designed more for families and casual gamers.
Hopefully this project is completely unrelated to the Ghostbusters 3 “Ghostbusters go to Hell” script which was supposedly in development as a computer animated film.
