Billy Bob & Napoleon Join "Scoundrel" School

by | August 4, 2005 | Comments

Variety reports that Billy Bob Thornton and Jon Heder will co-star in a remake of the 1960 comedy "School for Scoundrels," with Todd ("Road Trip") Phillips in the director’s chair.

The "School" will soon be set up at Weinstein’s Dimension label. Screenwriter Scot Armstrong, who has already collaborated with Mr. Phillips on "Road Trip," "Staraky & Hutch," and "Old School," will be assuming his co-scribe position.

"Heder plays a down-on-his-luck meter reader who enrolls in a confidence-building class so he can win the love of his dream girl. The class turns out to be something quite different once it becomes clear to the young man that his professor (Thornton) has set his sights on the same woman."

Dimension plans to start shooting in October in preparation for a late-spring / early-summer release.
