An Air Guitar movie

10.23.2009
100%

I got a fever, and the only prescription is...more air guitar.

It's really not, but it's happening anyway. Justin Theroux (writer, director, all around bad-ass) is producing a movie titled AIR GUITAR. The film will be set in the world of air guitar competitions and feature the colorful characters that participate in them. This is definitely not a documentary, as there was already one in 2006 called AIR GUITAR NATION.

GUITAR is being penned by Nate Reger and Mike Lisbe. Both writers have done some television writing here and there, but nothing too notable. They were actually producers on the show JUST SHOOT ME. The film was originally set up with Dreamworks but is now over at Paramount.

I don't find air guitar very interesting, but it can be quite funny. Then again, it's only funny for so long. I'm sure they'll put an eclectic cast that will make up some sort of ragtag group that will compete together in the competition. Or it will be one of those things were the main character looks like a pathetic loser for doing air guitar then becomes this awesome hero at the end. I sort of picture a cast much like the one from DODGEBALL.

Theroux always has something appealing going on. It's too bad he isn't writing this one. I loved TROPIC THUNDER. Even though I'm not in love with the idea, it might turn out pretty decent as they continue planning.

Extra Tidbit: What is your favorite line from TROPIC THUNDER? Mine is one from Kirk Lazarus, "Same thing happened to me when I played Neil Armstrong in Moonshot. They found me in an alley in Burbank trying to re-enter the earth's atmosphere in an old refrigerator box."

Dont know about this

If done right this could be funny, Air Guitar Nation was funny but got old. As far as Tropic Thunder quotes "Everybody knows you dont go full retard."

Air Guitar Nation was unexpectedly entertaining.

I rented "Air Guitar Nation" on a whim thinking we'll see. I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was one of those documentaries you think that no way in hell will it be the least bit [link] & I was wrong. Is it great? No, but it was fun. Now making a movie out this, um we'll see, but it is nice that Theroux is involved. Another type of good documentary to try is "Planet B-Boy!" It is in the same kind of Vein, but it is a fantastic documentary! This is from a guy who pretty much knows ZIP about

Another good one is called "Rize" & it's about Crumping which I know nothing about either. There are really becoming some excellent documentarians & picking subjects that most people don't know about & making them good! Now if we could only have some Fictional movies like that.

If Theroux was writing it...

I'd be all over it. But with two dudes from Just Shoot Me? I'm iffy on it.
And my favorite line (which no one notices) is right before Kirk snatches the map from Tug when he's "complimenting" how cut he is. "Got any tips? Got any tips? *snatch*" Goddamn it I laugh every time .

Wow, I think you pretty much nailed this one Nikki

The operative word will definitely be "ragtag". This just screams ragtag group movie, and I bet the Dodgeball comparison won't be too far off (although the first film the summary made me think of was Airheads).

Favorite line?

Would have to be Kirk Lazarus' "Man, I don't drop character 'till I done the DVD commentary."

And he fucking did the commentary in character. RDJ is a badass.
