Dimension films is making Superhero, a comic-book parody that would seem like a horribly ill-advised remake of Mystery Men if it didn't star Leslie Nielsen, Jeffrey Tambor, and Chris "Shooter McGavin" McDonald.  

The film will be directed by the guy who wrote Scary Movie 3 and 4 (enthusiasm fading…), and produced by David Zucker (Airplane!) and Robert K. Weiss (The Naked Gun sequels) – enthusiasm leveling off…

If this isn't any good I'll be very sad.  Leslie Nielsen is pretty much my hero.  Heck, I'd name my first born Leslie if it weren't such a fruit name.  -[via Hollywood Reporter]

UPDATE: Apparently, it's also got commander Data from Star Trek. I always thought he deserved more work.
