Apatow Goes Prehistoric, With a Hint of Caddyshack
By Guest Contributor
It seems that the old 80's comedic forces of Harold Ramis are back, and this time under Judd Aptatow's wing.
Year One is the result.
Harold Ramis is writing and directing this new primordial romp, and he and Apatow are sticking in a great looking cast. Starring in the two main roles are Jack Black and Michael Cera as Zed and Oh, respectively. They play two cavemen who go looking for the meaning of life.
Cera and Black have said that the movie is basically a Monty Python style comedy instead of a 'Knocked Up' style comedy, and set in biblical times.
Other Apatow favorites such as Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Paul Rudd, and Bill Hader have been cast, as well as many other great names in comedy like Hank Azaria, David Cross, Vinnie Jones, and Oliver Platt.
Year One hits theaters Summer '09, and I will definitely be there.
