"Reno" Makes the Jump from Small to Silver Screen

by | January 5, 2006 | Comments

The Hollywood Reporter brings news that the cult comedy series "Reno 911!" will soon be making its way into the movie-houses, which should please the cast members, the fans, and Comedy Central a whole heck of a lot.

"The creators of Comedy Central’s "Reno 911!" are taking their cop spoof to the big screen. 20th Century Fox and Paramount Pictures will co-produce "Reno 911!: Miami," which will be helmed by the TV series’ co-creator, Robert Ben Garant. The film is described as an improvisational-based project that will follow a script written by Garant and fellow series co-creators Thomas Lennon and Kerri Kenney. "Reno 911!: Miami," which starts shooting Jan. 23 in Miami and Los Angeles, finds the officers visiting a national police convention in Miami Beach at the height of spring break. When the convention center is bio-attacked, it’s up to Reno’s "finest" to save the day."

This is particularly good news for Mr. Garant and collaborator Thomas Lennon; the pair have, in recent months, penned the screenplays for "The Pacifier," "Taxi," and "Herbie: Fully Loaded."

(Anyone else remember when these guys did "The State" on MTV? Where’s that DVD release already?)
