Hi, Bryan Here….

It’s been way too long since the last Christopher Guest film.  Over six years in fact since ‘For Your Consideration’ made is laugh our asses off.  I’ve been wondering when we were going to be watching a brand new Christopher Guest improv film. It looks like sooner than later, our wildest dreams will come true with Guest’s new project, ‘Family Tree’.

Guest and his co-creator and writer, Jim Piddock have been working hard on ‘Family Tree’ which is and improvised genealogy comedy which follows a guy attempting to track down his whole family.  That guy will be played by Chris Dowd.  Dowd was the tall Irish cop in ‘Bridesmaids’.  Guest and Piddock want the series to be a half hour commercial-free series like ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ and is being shopped to HBO, Showtime, and Netflix at the moment.  No details yet on a more detailed plot synopsis or cast, but I’d expect the normal people to show up.

 

Your thoughts?  Via Vulture.

Movie Quotes

Star Wars (1977)
Han Solo:
Han Solo. I'm captain of the Millennium Falcon. Chewie here tells me you're lookin' for passage to the Alderaan system?
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi:
Yes indeed, if it's a fast ship.
Han Solo:
Fast ship? You've never heard of the Millennium Falcon?
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi:
Should I have?
Han Solo:
It's the ship that made the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs. I've outrun Imperial starships. Not the local bulk cruisers mind you, I'm talking about the big Corellian ships now. She's fast enough for you old man. What's the cargo?
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi:
Only passengers. Myself, the boy, two droids... and no questions asked.
Han Solo:
[chuckles] What is it? Some kind of local trouble?
Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi:
Let's just say we'd like to avoid any Imperial entanglements.
