Not since the casting of John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell has news of two top-list comedians playing siblings been more exciting. That’s exactly the case as Johnny Knoxville and Patton Oswalt have been signed to play brothers in an upcoming beach comedy from executive producer David Gordon Green.
Johnny Knoxville and Patton Oswalt have signed on to star in an untitled comedy that will be directed by Todd Rohal and financed by Marc Turtletaub and Peter Saraf’s Big Beach Films. Knoxville and Oswalt will play battling brothers who attempt to honor their ailing father by taking a troop of boys on a camping trip. It all goes awry.
Rob Riggle, Maura Tierney and Patrice O’Neal also star. Rohal, who originally wrote the script under the title Scout Master, most recently directed The Catechism Cataclysm. Production on the new comedy starts this week.
With a cast like Riggle, O’Neal, Oswalt, and Knoxville, you can only expect the film from the same people that are bringing us Our Idiot Brother this Friday to blow the doors off of the off-beat indie comedy.
We expect to hear more (and hopefully a title) soon as production kicks in this week. Who else would you like to see join this upcoming comedy? Sound off!
