Chris Rock's Death at a Funeral Urban Remake Trailer Debut
Okay, I'm admittedly a little bias. Death at a Funeral, the original Frank Oz version, is one of my favorite comedies. I was one of the first people to see it at its world premiere and supported it all the way through its release. Somehow, Chris Rock got his hands on the remake rights, and in no time whipped out a terrible remake. So here we have the "urban" version of Death at a Funeral starring Chris Rock, Martin Lawrence, Tracy Morgan, Danny Glover, James Marsden, Luke Wilson, and the beautiful Zoe Saldana. The only funny part about this is that they re-used Peter Dinklage, who starred in the original, in the same exact role again.

A small funeral ceremony turns into a comedic debacle of exposed family secrets and misplaced cadavers.
Death at a Funeral is directed by Neil LaBute, of In the Company of Men, The Shape of Things, The Wicker Man, and Lakeview Terrace previously. The screenplay was written by Dean Craig, of Dirty Little Secrets, Caffeine, and the original Death at a Funeral was well. This is a remake of Frank Oz's film from 2007 of the same name. Sony is now bringing Death at a Funeral to theaters everywhere starting on April 16th, 2010.
