To me, the only male synchronized swimmers are the ones above -- Martin Short and Harry Shearer, with a little added choreography from a spandex-clad Christopher Guest. However, we're about to get another variety, and I'm not sure what I think about that. The Hollywood Reporter posts that Disney and Scott Rudin have teamed up for Synchronicity, a project that's been in development hell at the company for awhile now.
Mary Scott and Toni Kotite, who recently sold Parent Class, are working on the script, which focuses on male synchronized swimmers, and of course, is said to be following the lead of Will Ferrell and Ben Stiller's sports comedies. But what's with this recent obsession? Variety reported back in March that Sweden is making their own male synchronized comedy.
If Christopher Guest did this feature too, I'd be intrigued. But as it stands, do we really need another typical goofy male sports comedy?
