Strangers With Candy: The Movie: According to Variety, Late Show host, David Letterman and his Worldwide Pants production shingle have come aboard as producers of the tentatively titled Strangers With Candy: The Movie. Pic, based on the Comedy Central skein of the same name, marks the first time Letterman and "Pants" have backed a feature film. The film has not gained distribution yet.
Letterman cited "Strangers" star Amy Sedaris, who's also a writer on the movie, as a motivating factor for his decision to don a producer's cap.
"Amy Sedaris is one of a handful of folks who actually make me laugh," Letterman said. "I have no doubt her film will be as appealingly peculiar and funny as she is."
