Comedian, George Lopez and Maggie Q have signed on to join Dan Fogler and director Ben Garant (creator of Reno 911) in the new comedy, Balls of Fury.

The film is about the underground world of ping pong tournaments. Fogler is the lead as a down-and-out player who enters the secret world to find the man who killed his father, says The Hollywood Reporter. Lopez will play the FBI agent who recruits Fogler, while Maggie Q plays the sexy niece of his mentor, Master Wong.

Production is set to begin next month; Balls of Fury should hit theaters in 2007.
