(l-r):.Kevin Bishop,.Xavier Samuel and.Kris Marshall.in A Few Less Men.

A Few Less Men, the sequel to Stephan Elliott's 2011 comedy A Few Best Men, was helmed by Mark Lamprell, the screenwriter of Babe: Pig in the City and director of 2000's My Mother Frank and 2013's Goddess.

Lamprell came on board after reading the script by Dean Craig (Death at a Funeral), who wrote the original film.

"It was lovely working on somebody else's screenplay because it was a really solid screenplay structurally," Lamprell said. "I could see that there was a really good movie in there. Dean's a very accomplished writer. The whole guts of it were laid out before me.".

Lamprell, who got his start at Kennedy Miller making Bts documentaries such as The Making of Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome (1985), describes A Few Less Men as "a silly comedy.".

"It's not high-brow wit. »

BBC America Developing Projects with Amy Poehler, ‘Orphan Black’ Producers (Exclusive)

31 May 2016 11:00 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

BBC America is in the midst of its first big development push under the leadership of president and general manager Sarah Barnett, who took the reins of the cabler early last year.

Projects in the works include dramas from the producers behind “Orphan Black,” Amy Poehler’s production banner and “Happy Valley” producer Red.

This month, Bbca began production on the first original scripted series to be greenlit by the new regime, an adaptation of Douglas Adams’ 1987 novel “Dirk Gently’s Holistic Detective Agency.” That show is set for debut Oct. 22, part of a wave of new series arriving on the channel in the second half of the year.

Barnett and her team did a fair amount of research to wrap their minds around the challenge of expanding BBC America’s brand. “We spent a lot of time thinking about what the ‘A’ stood for in Bbca,” she says.

Jim Rash really misses his “Community” co-star Joel McHale, and we mean he really misses him. McHale’s disbarred lawyer Jeff Winger and Rash’s Dean Craig Pelton both bid farewell to the former NBC comedy in June when it ended its run on Yahoo! Screen. Fortunately, the comedy actors had a happy reunion when they went from work colleagues to rivals on Thursday’s installment of “Lip Sync Battle,” with McHale kicking off the show with a bouncy rendition of Imagine Dragons’ “I Bet My Life.” Also Read: Katharine McPhee Shakes Her Booty at Jason Derulo on 'Lip Sync Battle »

If you a fan of a) Stanley Kubrick and b) all things astronomical then you’ve possibly come across the conspiracy theory that Stanley Kubrick was rumoured to have faked the Apollo 11 moon landings for the Us Government.

The conspiracy has spiraled so far out of control that the documentary Room 237 at one point brings up the theory that the late director actually gave clues to the gigantic cover up within The Shining.

And now we have Moonwalkers, a high-concept, action comedy based around this conspiracy theory and starring Ron Perlman and Rupert Grint, which is set to arrive on DVD on May 30th courtesy of Icon Film Distribution.
