Magnolia Picks Up ‘Tim And Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie
If we didn’t know any better, it’s looks like Magnolia is making moves to become some serious players in the indie film biz. They’ve already snatched up the rights to Lars Von Trier‘s forthcoming “Melancholia” and now they’ve added another buzzworthy film to their slate.
ComingSoon reveals that Magnolia has picked up “Tim And Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie” featuring a starry roster of talent including Zach Galifianakis, Will Ferrell, John C. Reilly, Robert Loggia, Jeff Goldblum, Will Forte and William Atherton. The film marks Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim’s feature debut and Wareheim previously described the meta plot as it follows their onscreen characters who “literally get a billion dollars to make a movie, and we make it, and things go awry, and Tim and I just decide to get out of Hollywood and become businessmen in an abandoned mall.” The film is currently in front of cameras and there is no release date set just yet.

Thanks Jeffan! I have a brand spankin' new photobucket account and I'm learning how to use it! Not a big deal for most of you, but quite an accomplishment for me. I'm soooo technologically challenged.
DonnaJo, my sig is from "Gemini". Alex and Bobby are looking over evidence in the conference room and this is the letter that Spencer's brother wrote. It is right before Deakins walks in. If you sneeze you'll miss it! (Alliehalliewell- It's that gift I was telling you about LOL)
