Jay Chandrasekhar

Jay Chandrasekhar, of Broken Lizard, has made a decent name for himself as a cult comedy director. After he had the hilarious Super Troopers under his belt (we'll just ignore Club Dread out of courtesy), he made the jump to a more mainstream comedy in the 2005 bland and uninspired Dukes of Hazzard. Luckily he followed it up with another worthy cult comedy in Beerfest. As of late, Chandrasekhar has spent a lot of time as a gun for hire directing episodes for Universal television series like "Psych" and "Chuck." Variety now reports his return to features directing Shotgun Wedding, comedy he co-wrote with David Gilcreast.

The low budget comedy follows the traveling antics of a bachelor when he asks his friends to join him on a weekend trip for his wedding (uh oh, sounds like The Hangover). Aside from the story details, I'm sure we can expect that Chandrasekhar will be joined by other Broken Lizard members like Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter, and Erik Stolhanske. Broken Lizard is deep in post-production on their film Freeloaders (featuring G4's Olivia Munn and Counting Crows frontman Adam Duritz) and their other film The Slammin' Salmon coming to theaters later this year after being showcased at the SXSW and Slamdance Film Festivals earlier this year. Shotgun Wedding will start shooting in New Orleans this November. Sound any good?

    I was bummed that they didn't do Potfest, but I'm a huge fan of this particular brand of comedy and even enjoyed Club Dread because of it parody texture to cheesy slasher flicks.
