The D is back! And so are D and C!
This is turning out to be an awesome week. Not only did it start with me watching the awesome Hunger Games, it continues with two excellent news stories from Hollywood!
And it was about time, I was afraid 2012 would be all about celebrity news items like “Who impregnated Snooki?” or “Angelina Jolie’s leg lands its own show on FOX”.
But luckily I was proven wrong. Listen to this:
1. When he is not busy trying to get Bill Murray to join the Ghostbusters 3 cast, Dan Aykroyd is writing a screenplay with Chevy Chase. It’s been twenty years since they appeared in a movie together and even though Nothing But Trouble was kind off a mess, I can’t wait to see them team up again.
Ever since Chevy Chase started to be funny again on TV (Community), I have been hoping he would get a second chance of being funny in movies again as well. I usually hate sequels, but this time I’m really hoping for a Spies Like Us 2.
2. Tenacious D, the greatest band in the world is back.
No, it’s not an early April Fool’s joke. They are really back!
Jack Black and Kyle Gass has reunited after their box office failure with The Pick of Destiny and is releasing a new studio album called The Rise of the Phoenix on May 15. This is might be the best news I’ve heard since Dan Aykroyd announced he’s writing a movie with Chevy Chase!
Take a look at this awesome announcement video with cameos by Tim Robbins, Val Kilmer, Dave Grohl and Josh Groban.
