BENNY HILL BIOPIC MUSICAL – DAMIEN CHAZELLE DIRECTING

BREAKING NEWS – Wunderkind writer / director, Damien Chazelle’s next film will be a Benny Hill musical biopic. The Exec caught up with Chazelle to discuss his magnum opus.

 

Damien, what was it about Benny Hill that drew you to the project?

 

I’ve always loved that sophisticated English humor, y’know? There’s just nothing funnier than watching a middle-aged, fat, white guy chasing after scantily-clad young women. Especially if you speed it up slightly and put that funny saxophone music over the top. It’s a winner every time.

 

Do you not think that kind of humor is problematic these days?

 

Look, if chasing around after young women with hardly anything on is problematic, then I’m a wrinkly little old man. And you can keep slapping the top of my wrinkly, bold head. Plus, you don’t know who I have playing Benny Hill.

 

So, who is playing Benny Hill?

 

Well, I really wanted to capture that cheeky, everyman spirit that Benny had. Y’know what I mean? So I thought who is around currently who can bring all that. But I also need them to be able to dance. The movie has huge dance sequences, just like La La Land. They also need to be able to carry a decent tune.

 

Come on, who is it?

 

Ok. I’ll tell, But you have to promise to keep it to yourself. Lady Gaga.

 

I’m sorry?

 

Trust me. She has the acting chops to do it. We’ll stick her in a fat suit. Just like the one they used in Shallow Hal. It’ll be fucking dynamite. She’s going to write the music, with lyrics by Tim Rice. It can’t be sexist if we have a woman playing him.

 

Are you sure about that? You’ll still be depicting the same sexist jokes?

 

All we’re going to be doing is objectifying women as play things for middle-aged lecherous white men. How can anyone have a problem with that? We’ve questioned lots of focus groups in England, Florida, Alaska and Texas. They all loved the idea.

THE FARRELLY BROTHERS TO MAKE MOVIE OF GOP CONVENTION

HOLLYWOOD – The Farrelly Brothers are to return to gross out comedy with a film based on the 22016 GOP convention.

The team who brought us Dumb and Dumber, There’s Something About Mary, Shallow Hal and Dumb and Dumber To are to make a motion picture based on the Republican Convention which closes in Cleveland tonight.

Peter and Bobby Farrelly spoke EXCLUSIVELY to the Studio Exec about their new project. Peter spoke first:

We came down to the convention as we just wanted to soak up the vibe but pretty soon we just started filming. The original idea was to use that material as research material basically. And write a script off of that, exaggerating and what not for comic effect. It turns out that we can basically just use the footage we have. There is nothing that we can think of which is grosser or more comic than what we witnessed.

Bobby added:

If anything, we have too much material. I don’t know what’s funnier, Ted Cruz getting booed or Melania Trump copying Michelle Obama’s speech! Perhaps it’s Ben Carson insisting that Hillary Clinton is inspired by Lucifer, or Chris Christie performing some kind of mock trial of the former Secretary of State. It was sick and crazy and that’s coming from the guy who was involved in Movie 43.

The Republican Convention concludes this evening with a speech from Donald Trump.
