Ken Jeong

In this edition of movies that might just be crazy enough to work, we have a wild comedy developing between Hyde Park Entertainment, Image Nation Abu Dhabi and the sterling WWE Studios. Deadline has word that The Hangover and "Community" co-star Ken Jeong is being placed in the lead role of a comedy that is currently being referred to as Untitled Celebrity Death Pool. The film will see Jeong playing a struggling night club owner with a massive debt to a loan shark. So in order to get the money he needs to pay them back, he decides to make good on his club's celebrity death pool by killing David Hasselhoff.

The Hoff is also on board to co-star in the film, and he's also producing with the rest of the aforementioned companies, because why not? But he's not the only star seemingly stuck in the 90s popping up in the film. Wrestler Hulk Hogan will also have some kind of role, possibly as another member of the celebrity death pool. Or maybe he's just really good friends with Hasselhoff. Anyway, Darren Grant (Diary of a Mad Black Woman) will direct from a script that was written on spec by Peter Hoare. This doesn't sound like it has much potential, especially with Jeong in the lead (he only seems to work in small doses), but like we said at the beginning, this just might be crazy enough to work. Anyone interested?

If written right this could definitely be funny. I'm in.

I will wait for WWE's LEPRECHAUN film to judge this one.
