According to The Hollywood Reporter, Carsey-Werner Films is making its first foray into the motion picture business, boarding the comedy You Are Going to Prison, starring Dax Shepard and Will Arnett. CW Films will be financing the project and will produce with Strike Entertainment.
The film is based on the book by Jim Hogshire. The screenplay was written by Robert Ben Garant, Thomas Lennon and Michael Patrick Jann. Described as an irreverent buddy comedy, the film revolves around a career criminal and a self-entitled rich guy stuck sharing a cell in a maximum-security prison.
Bob Odenkirk directs.
