RKO is putting money down for "Love on a Bet," a remake of a 1936 road comedy that will be directed by Steve Carr.
The original "Bet" was a Depression-era comedy -- directed by Leigh Jason and starring Gene Raymond and Wendy Barrie -- that followed a man who, in order to raise money for a play, makes a bet with a rich uncle that he can begin a journey in New York's Central Park with nothing but his underwear and end up in California with a suit, $100 and a fiancee.
"The original took place in the days where it was racy to be in underwear," Hartley said. "This movie is going to start out with the guy wearing a lot less than his underwear. It's going to be edgy and romantic. »

The first immensely unfunny viral video for the upcoming Mall Cop movie has been unearthed. In the movie, Kevin James stars as mall security guard Paul Blart and when the mall is overtaken by a gang of organized crooks, it's up to him to save the day. We've neglected to ever mention Mall Cop before today because I much prefer the Seth Rogen mall security comedy Observe and Report instead. And this video proves how terribly unfunny and unentertaining this version will be. The only enjoyable part of watching this was all the cool skating footage at the beginning, and the moment Kevin James steps in, it's instantly boring. This really looks like it'll be the worst comedy since Delta Farce, so don't waste your time. Watch the viral teaser for Mall Cop: [flv:http://bitcast-a.bitgravity.com/firstshowing/mallcopviral.flv http://bitcast-a.bitgravity.com/firstshowing/mallcopviral.jpg 400 226] Paul Blart: Mall Cop is directed by Steve Carr, of Next Friday, Dr. Dolittle 2, Daddy »
