Exclusive Q&A with Kevin Sorbo, Stelio Savante and Stephen Wallis on romantic comedy The Whole Banana

8 April 2012 5:20 AM, PDT | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Upcoming movie The Whole Banana may feature elements of ancient Greek mythology but, as the whimsical title suggests, it's far removed from any of the other recent productions that have clashed their immortal titans on the big screen.

Instead of a gritty action film with furious gods and fire-spewing fiends locked in deadly battle, you will find a heartwarming tale of charm and humour that promises to show us what it means to be human.

Filming is under way in Los Angeles on the romantic comedy, whose all-star cast of movie and TV favourites includes Kevin Sorbo (Hercules) and Kristy Swanson (Buffy), with large cameo roles from Matthew Perry (Friends) and Dean Cain (Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman). We previously reported that Resident Evil actress Sienna Guillory and the Farley brothers had also signed on to the production.

Farley brothers join Sienna Guillory, Matthew Perry, Dean Cain, Kevin Sorbo in Greek gods comedy The Whole Banana

15 March 2012 1:11 PM, PDT | The Geek Files | See recent The Geek Files news »

Greek mythology is an inspiration for many big-screen productions at present.

These include Immortals; Clash of the Titans and its imminent sequel Wrath of the Titans; and Percy Jackson & The Lightning Thief, also getting a follow-up in the form of Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters.

Now it's a case of Greek mirth as the gods of the ancient world are given a humorous twist in The Whole Banana.

Brothers Kevin P. Farley­­ (Joe Dirt, The Waterboy) and John Farley (Jack and Jill, Get Smart) - both pictured above in 2008's Blonde and Blonder - have been announced as signing on to the romantic comedy in as-yet-unspecified roles.

They join a cast including Resident Evil star Sienna Guillory, Kristy Swanson, Kevin Sorbo, Dominique Swain, Stelio Savante, Clint Howard and Jeffrey Vincent Parise.
