Jay Roach feeds the Schmucks. I guess someone has to

Posted on 05 March 2009 by ShepRamsey

Austin Powers director Jay Roach’s new comedy, Dinner for Schmucks is finally getting under way after last year’s lengthy custody dispute over it between Paramount and DreamWorks. According to Variety, Paramount and Spyglass Entertainment will produce the film, a remake of the 1998 French film, Le Diner de consjay_roach

The film will star Steve Carell and Paul Rudd, who previously worked together on Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy and The 40-Year-Old Virgin. Originally set to star in the film was Borat himself, Sascha Baron Cohen, but he dropped out of the project some time last year.

This will be Roach’s first theatrical film since his 2004 sequel, Meet the Fockers. He made a film last year for HBO about the 2000 Florida recount, aptly titled Recount. I’m looking forward to this one. Roach has proven himself a pretty strong comedic director (even if Fockers and the final Austin Powers film were pretty lackluster) and right here he’s working with a relly great cast. Shouldn’t be too bad.
