While you probably remember Fred Durst as the multi-talented lead singer for Limp Bizkit, most famous for “Chocolate Starfish and the Hot Dog-Flavored Water”, the War & Peace of early 2000s Florida rap-rock, the truth is that he’s also a film director, with two feature films already under his stud belt. He’s currently in pre-production on a thriller he’s directing, and the word is that he’s cast Paul Walker. That’s right, a collaboration between the 4 Fast 4 Furious guy and the Limp Bizkit guy. It was only by the grace of God this hadn’t happened already.
Paul Walker is starring in Pawn Shop Chronicles, a thriller that Fred Durst will direct.
I hope it’s about a guy trying to get more than a dollar for his old Limp Bizkit CDs…
“This is a hillbilly Pulp Fiction,” said producer Steve Schur, calling the script “fast-moving and action-packed. It’s also very funny. It’s got all these elements to really pack a punch.”
Adds Durst, “It’s really gonna… BREAK YOUR F*CKIN’ FACE TONIIIIIGHT!” (*DJ scratching*)
The interconnected stories center on a missing wedding ring which leads to a wild-goose chase involving meth addicts, skinheads and an Elvis impersonator.

I’d love to see the look on this guy’s face when they told him, “Great news! Your script got bought and they’re turning it into a big Hollywood movie!” (*dramatic pause*) “Starring Paul Walker and directed by Fred Durst!”
It was probably one of those days where he just didn’t wanna wake up. I hope he told them where they could stick that cookie, if you know what I mean.
I watched a few old Limp Bizkit videos as research for this post, and now I have to share this misery. Watching child porn in which I starred would bring back fewer painful memories. God the late 90s sucked.
