Danny McBride & Jody Hill Join Together Again for L.A.P.I.

February 4, 2010

Danny McBride and Jody Hill

After Will Ferrell and Adam McKay laid eyes upon The Foot Fist Way, writer/director Jody Hill and actor Danny McBride had gotten their breakthrough. Years and years of patience paid off after Hill, McBride and friend David Gordon Green moved out to Hollywood after film school in North Carolina, and now the three are in the thick of it. After the success of their HBO series "Eastbound and Down," I was wondering when Hill and McBride would get back together, and now Variety reports the two will reunite for L.A.P.I. a story (no details are known yet) that has McBride playing a hard-boiled, downtrodden private investigator.

The film, being developed through Hill, McBride and Green's recently founded Rough House Pictures, is based on a pitch from writers Michael Diliberti and Matthew Sullivan who are also working on a remake of Brewster's Millions after the much talked about Comic-Con script gained considerable buzz (the one about the friends who plan and execute a daring heist at Comic-Con). Sounds like a tremendous amount of talent behind this one, and I can't wait to see Hill and McBride return to the big screen. While we wait for this to come together, I suggest checking out Jody Hill's Observe & Report or "Eastbound and Down" (on DVD).

    Eastbound was really cool, Observe and Report was okay.

    FUCK YEA! Eastbound was a great show, Mcbride is fucking hilarious! observe was pretty good, I dont mind the weak points with these guys but I can see where they are going with their work and ideas and i love every bit of it.

    Eastbound is pretty good. You can tell it's low budget and def just for guys. You can also tell the rookie-like feeling of writing/directing. A lot of the times, the episodes don't flow well and the characters have too many changing emotions, but all-in-all I am usually laughing too hard to care anyways beause McBride was born to play Kenny Powers.
