Fan Boys Ready to Go

November 1, 2005 (2:56 am) GMT
The Weinstein Co. is closing a deal to preemptively acquire the comedy film "Fan Boys," based on a screenplay by Adam F. Goldberg and Ernest Cline

This upcoming footage is a very different one. Unlike many other comedies, this one is very unique. Dubbed "Fan Boys," the story is based on a screenplay by Adam F. Goldberg and Ernest Cline. It follows a group of young, hardcore "Star Wars" fans from the Midwest determined to take their dying friend to Skywalker Ranch so that he can see the seminal sci-fi pic in its perfect setting before he dies.

What do you think? The Weinstein Co. is in the final deal to acquire the film rights, while the movie is scheduled to begin filming on February 1. Already set to star in is Dan Fogler.

Work on the "Fan Boys" is Kyle Mann who is about to direct. Also there is Trigger Street label's Kevin Spacey, Dana Brunetti, Evan Astrowsky and Matthew Perniciaro to produce.
