It is certain that Reno 911! (the series) was one of the most insanely hilarious pieces of late night television. But can the fellas behind the Cops spoof pull off an exorcism comedy? Take a look at their next project, Hell Baby, and find out.
While we're VERY excited to see Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant reunited, we're not feeling all the bells and whistles in this trailer. This kind of comedy is better when it's stripped down and raw. Then again, this is just a trailer — we're sure there's at least one moment in this movie that's going to make us hit the floor. After all, it was written by Lennon and Garant. Here's the full synopsis:
“Hell Baby,” a comedy scripted by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant (Night at The Museum, Reno 911!: Miami) marks their co-directing debut. Jack (Rob Corddry) and Vanessa (Leslie Bibb) are an expectant couple that moves into the most haunted fixer-upper in New Orleans — a house with a deadly demonic curse. Things soon spiral out of control for Jack and Vanessa, as well as their-not-so-helpful neighbor F’Resnel (Keegan-Michael Key), Vanessa’s friendly psychiatrist (Michael Ian Black), Vanessa’s Wiccan sister Marjorie (Riki Lindhome) and the detectives assigned to look into the rising body count (Rob Huebel and Paul Scheer). Only the Vatican’s elite exorcism team (Garant and Lennon) san save them — or can they?
Hell Baby will be released on iTunes on July 25h.
