Writer/director Craig Moss, best known for the recent spoof “The 41-Year-Old Virgin Who Knocked Up Sarah Marshall and Felt Superbad About It”, is sharpening his fangs, flipping up his black collar, ready to sink his teeth into a “Twilight” pisstake.
A film Moss planned to shoot back in the Summer of 2010, then known as “Fully Mooned”, has been set from pause to play. Only now, it’s got a new title. And a home.
Moss is directing “Breaking Wind”, a fun-poke at the hugely successful young teen movie series, for Stonebrook (“Pennhurst”, “Open House”). The title is of course taking the mickey itself; the latest “Twilight” flick is “Breaking Dawn”, released in November.
Assumingly the film didn’t happen first time around because of Fox’s abysmal ‘Twilight’ mickey “Vampire’s Suck”, which bet it to the punch.
Time has passed though… and “Twilight” is still as fashionable as ever.
Unlike Fox’s stab, there may actually be jokes in “Wind” – atleast if Moss’s midly amusing and welcomingly racey “41-Year-Old” is anything to go by.
The script for this one, penned by Moss, tells of a young woman named Stella who is forced to choose between ”egocentric” vampire Edward and ”horny” werewolf Jacob. Whichever boy can satisfying Stella’s more intimate needs gets the gig. Expect plenty of jokes that won’t be suitable for the younger of Taylor Lautner’s fans.
Moss recently wrapped “Bad Ass”, a tongue-in-cheek action movie starring genre staples Danny Trejo, Ron Perlman and Craig Sheffer. Would be nice to think a couple of those guys – Trejo as Billy Black? Sheffer as Stella’s doting single-father? – might do a turn in the flick.
To give you an idea of Moss’s previous work, here’s a couple of clips from “The 41-Year-Old Virgin Who Knocked Up Sarah Marshall and Felt Superbad About It” :
