Jody Hill’s debut comedy The Foot Fist Way didn’t make it to Australian shores and I badly wish that it had based on the good word of mouth on the internet (including from Will Ferrell) and the fact that it starred Danny McBride who was so great in Screener fave David Gordon Green’s All the Real Girls. (Danny McBride has also hit big in the mainstream with roles in Pineapple Express and Tropic Thunder). Reasons to be excited about this film: (1) Based on the trailer this film seems to have a fairly dark, perverse tone miles away from the gooey optimistic Apatow-produced stuff. (2) On a more cinephiley note, this film is being shot by Tim Orr, longtime collaborator of David Gordon Green.
With a star like Seth Rogen, I’m pretty sure that this will hit Australian cinemas so keep a look out.
