Duritz to drain the Lizard

Broken Lizard are teaming up with shaggy-haired singer Adam Duritz (‘The Counting Crowes’) to produce the film, “Freeloaders”.

The film, says Variety, revolves around five guys and a girl who live in the lap of luxury in a rock star’s mansion. But their sweet situation is threatened when the rock star decides to sell the home.

Broken Lizard is composed of Erik Stolhanske, Paul Soter, Steve Lemme, Kevin Heffernan, Jay Chandrasekhar and producers Richard Perello and Julia Dray. Although the comedy troupe behind “Beerfest” and “Club Dread” has a deal at Warner Bros., they are independently financing “Freeloaders.”

Interesting to note that the comedy troupe is currently developing a TV series based on the Aussie cable comedy “Chandon Pictures” which Rob Carlton created. Lizard’s incarnation will be called ‘’Brilliant Pictures’’ and be produced by Lionsgate for Fox.
