T.J. Miller & Nick Swardson

What the hell this is, it sounds awesome! Out of left field today via Deadline comes some casting news for an R-rated stop-motion animated comedy called Hell & Back, made by production company ShadowMachine Films. We don't see many of these, which is why there can never before enough of them. Starring, as presumably just their voices, in the lead roles are comedians Nick Swardson (Grandma's Boy, Bolt, Bucky Larson, 30 Minutes or Less) and T.J. Miller (Cloverfield, Unstoppable, Gulliver's Travels, Yogi Bear). Two hilarious guys who should certainly bring plenty of levity to this stop-motion flick, but what is it about?

According to the Deadline post, Hell & Back is about two best friends who must rescue their pal when he is accidentally dragged to hell. So it sounds like Swardson and Miller, the two best friends, are dragged through hell and back to get him. This is being made by the company behind "Robot Chicken" and "Moral Orel" on Adult Swim, and they have Tommy Gianas (of work on "Tenacious D", "Human Giant" and "Nick Swardson's Pretend Time") set to direct with Ross Shuman. This just sounds awesome and the casting is great, these two guys are hilarious and should be hilarious together, even in stop-motion. Shooting starts in January, but the process takes a long time so we might not see this until late next year or 2013. Stay tuned!
