DINNER FOR SCHMUCKS Writers To Direct CRUISE OF THE GODS
Screenwriting duo David Guion and Michael Handelman are getting set to write and direct the upcoming film ‘Cruise of the Gods.’ The film is a remake based upon the 2002 BBC comedy with the same title.
The BBC production was a comedy about a cruise held by the fans of ‘The Children of Castor.’ On board the cruise, the cast members go through angst and other mixed feelings based upon those who had successful careers and those whose careers ended with the show. Focus Features is in charge of the film with Red Hour”s Stuart Cornfeld and Ben Stiller on board to produce. Stiller and Cornfeld produced the films ‘Tropic Thunder’ and ‘Zoolander.’ Steve Coogan of Baby Cow Productions, who starred in the BBC production, will executive produce and could be considered for the cast.
Guion and Handelman have their film ‘Dinner for Schmucks’ set to release in theaters on July 30.
