Walken Attached to "Balls of Fury"

Variety reports that the "Reno 911!" fellas have cooked up a new comedy feature, and it’ll be a ping pong flick called "Balls of Fury." And here’s the sweet spot: Christopher Walken is in talks to star.

"Christopher Walken is set to star alongside Dan Fogler in "Balls of Fury," the pingpong comedy written by "Reno 911" creators Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant.

Walken plays Fang, an evil crime lord who is also a pingpong enthusiast. Fogler, the Tony-winning star of "The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee," plays a disgraced player enlisted by the CIA to join a tournament held in Fang’s lair. Lennon plays the comeback kid’s East German nemesis."

In addition to "Reno," Lennon & Garant collaborated on the screenplays for "Taxi," "The Pacifier," and "Herbie: Fully Loaded." Despite those credits, I’m pretty psyched for "Balls of Fury" and the impending "Reno 911!: Miami."
