Broken Lizard Finds a Home at WB

by | September 6, 2005 | Comments

Variety reports that the Broken Lizard comedy troupe – the knuckleheads behind "Club Dread" and "Super Troopers" – have signed a three-year contract with Warner Bros., and the first flick will be a comedy set in ancient Rome entitled "Greek Road." "Warners said the deal with the five-member Broken Lizard team — Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter and Erik Stolhanske — marks an aggressive step in trying to improve the studio’s track record with feature comedies.

One project already in discussion is Broken Lizard’s "Greek Road," a Monty Python-like spoof set in ancient Athens about a young Plato and his mentor that Chandrasekhar is set to helm.

Warner Bros. Pictures production prez Jeff Robinov, who has made it a stated priority to develop more comedies, said Broken Lizard is "key to bringing us fresh, unconventional ideas that appeal to a more broad audience.""
