This is Gonna Be Fire!



I hope works out... easily an instant classic!

Film director Brett Ratner revealed to New York radio station Hot 97 earlier today (August 1) that he is currently working on a new project with an all-star cast including Eddie Murphy, Chris Tucker, Chris Rock, Jamie Foxx and Dave Chappelle.

According to Ratner, Murphy called him to direct the untitled flick, which will star the aforementioned actors as employees of the Trump Tower, conspiring to rip off the building's residents.

Ratner also divulged that Denzel Washington and Sidney Poitier might be added to the cast by the time the flick begins production in January 2008. The movie is presently being put together by Russell Gerwitz, who wrote the script for Inside Man which also starred Washington.

Ratner has directed music videos for Wu-Tang Clan, LL Cool J, Mariah Carey and Sean "Diddy" Combs. His film credits include the Rush Hour series, Money Talks, X Men: The Last Stand and The Family Man, among others.

Where is Martin Lawrence!? I easily think his You So Crazy stand up was funnier than the stand-up specials of at least two of these other dudes!

That sounds good, but I want to see if it will actually works on tv.

Oh...HECK, yeah...that You So Crazy is one of my all-time favorite stand ups...that's like the only one I still run around quoting, but Martin has lost his luster...he's not that funny anymore.

Anointed One, I'm also wondering if this joint will actually "work." Lots of stuff sounds good in theory but doesn't actually work out.


I HOPE Martin is still funny. But the truth is we don't get to see it often.
