Broken Lizard, the comedy troupe, er troop, grr! behind Super Troopers, Club Dread, Beerfest, and the upcoming Slammin Salmon, are teaming up with Counting Crows lead singer Adam Duritz for their next project, Freeloaders.
Story revolves around five guys and a girl who live in the lap of luxury in a rock star’s mansion. But their sweet situation is threatened when the rock star decides to sell the home.
Dan Rosen wrote the screenplay with the Gigolo Aunts lead singer Dave Gibbs. Rosen is attached to direct, while Duritz is producing. [Variety]
I hope Adam Duritz plays a freeloader, because no one likes white guys with dreadlocks. When you’re white, having dreadlocks can either mean “I’m crazy and homeless” or “I’m rich and I hate my parents,” and in either case I translate it to “Don’t hang out with me.”
