by | May 17, 2005 | Comments

From Cannes, The Hollywood Reporter brings news of an upcoming ensemble comedy that sounds pretty enticing: Kathy Bates ("Misery"), Malcolm McDowell ("A Clockwork Orange"), and Jennifer Jason Leigh ("The Machinist") will be starring in Mary McGuckian‘s "Funny Farm."

Described as an edgy, black comedy "set in a celebrity drug and alcohol rehab clinic," the film will also star Ian Hart ("Finding Neverland"), Rupert Graves ("Extreme Ops"), and Lucy Davis ("Shaun of the Dead"). "Funny Farm" is meant to be a follow-up to McGuckian‘s "Rag Tale," which is currently winning some fans at Cannes.
