Fred Durst wasn't the first Du-singer to make it into the world of cinema. Back in the '90s, Counting Crows singer Adam Duritz produced two films, and now, a decade later, he's heading back to the biz. Variety reports that Duritz is going to produce a new film from the Broken Lizard comedy troupe called Freeloaders. Written by director Dan Rosen (with the lead singer of Gigolo Aunts, Dave Gibbs), the film focuses on "five guys and a girl who live in the lap of luxury in a rock star's mansion." That is, until the star decides that he wants to sell his home. Oh, the woes of groupie moochers. Broken Lizard (Super Troopers) is financing the film, and I imagine they're also starring in it -- that leaves us with the girl, and the rock star. Will Duritz take it? And speaking of '90s singers and film -- who's next? Mmm Mmm Mmming Brad Roberts?

Meanwhile: I knew it!! As soon as word hit earlier this year that Cheech and Chong were going back on the road, I wondered how long it would be before a reunion film. Well, we're not getting a fictional feature (not yet), but we are getting a concert documentary. The Hollywood Reporter posts that the Weinstein Co. will produce and distribute a doc based on their current Light up America tour. But don't hold your breath -- whether this makes it to the big screen depends on what the company thinks of the final product. Then they'll decide whether to release it in theaters or television.
