It’s been a great week for Adult Swim fans. Yesterday, news dropped that Delocated is renewed for a third season, and now we’re here to share some information from The Wrap about a new film project from the stars of Tim and Eric, Awesome Show Great Job! The ultra-meta premise is that the two characters, Tim and Eric, are given one billion dollars to make a movie, but everything falls apart and – of course – they have some wacky adventures.
In addition to the two stars, other familiar faces – Zach Galifianakis, John C. Reilly, Jeff Goldblum, Robert Loggia, Will Forte, and Will Ferrell – are also cast. Ferrell’s involvement comes as no surprise, since the film is jointly produced by his company, Gary Sanchez Productions.
How will history remember the Tim and Eric movie when all is said and done? The two have high hopes: “It really is a benchmark in the timeline of American film comedies.” Absolutely.
If you’re not familiar with the duo or just want to get in the mood, here’s one of my favorite Tim and Eric videos, “Celery Man,” starring Paul Rudd. And Tayne.
