We've long heard that the Workaholics gang is planning an action-comedy movie. While it was assumed to be an original work, it will actually be based on the Kyle Starks graphic novel Sexcastle. And they've landed Marvel favorites The Russo Bros. to help bring it to the screen.
Joe Russo and Anthony Russo will produce Sexcastle. Blake Anderson, one of the three main leads on Workaholics, will play the central character of Shane Sexcastle. The movie will be a throwback to action thrillers of the 80s, and follows the world's 'former' greatest assassin. He is, of course, pulled back in for one last job after leaving the hired killer life for retirement in a small town.Read More
Popular Comedy Central sitcom Workaholics was renewed for two more seasons in January, just as it was kicking of the second half of Workaholics Season 3. The team, lead by Adam DeVine, Blake Anderson, Anders Holm, and director/co-star Kyle Newacheck, doesn't plan on stopping there, though. The TeleAmeriCorp guys are in the midst of writing a big screen outing, and they've revealed that it is going to be an action comedy, though it won't be Workaholics: The Movie.
Kyle Newacheck, who plays drug dealer Karl on the series also directs every episode, and he will be at the helm of this big screen outing as well. He explained where the film is currently at in production."It's undergoing rewrites right now. It's definitely moving, and we're all very excited to do it. It's an action comedy, and it's going to be really badass and super funny. We're keeping a lot of it under wraps. I think I can say if you like Workaholics, you're going to like this movie.Read More

You'll notice that in today's cinematic landscape, most major characters needing a voice in a CGI or motion capture family film are supplied by an established A-list actor (see Johnny Depp in Rango) or a known celebrity (Taylor Swift is fourth billed in Dr. Seuss' the Lorax). Twenty-two years ago, way back in 1990, that wasn't the case. Take Beauty and the Beast for instance. In 1991, Robby Benson, the lead voice actor in the film, had been absent from the spotlight for many years and was cast primarily for his talents on the microphone, not any sort of marquee value. Angela Lansbury served as the only real stunt casting. If the film was made today, we'd see Anne Hathaway serving as Beauty, with Hugh Jackman stepping in as the Beast. Even a smaller part, like Chip or Stove, would be supplied by any given member of the Apatow repertoire.
One of the biggest franchises from the 90s had a certain lack of known talent as well. The original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was a film that opened March 30th, 1990, hitting number one on the box office charts for four consecutive weeks without nary a big name personality in sight. No mean feat, this cash cow won audiences over based solely on the existing property name alone, and its already established franchises in the world of cartoons and comic books. New Line Cinemas, a struggling studio at the time, kept the movie on the cheap and didn't have to hire known talent to portray the Turtles. Or any of the other cast members for that matter (though some of us at the time still held an affinity for Casey Jones' Elias Koteas based on his scene-stealing performance in Some Kind of Wonderful).Read More
