Beastie Boys movie fights for its right to get a full cast

01.17.2011

So despite reaching middle-age, the Beastie Boys are still around and putting out albums, their latest being Hot Sauce Committee pt. 2. But not content with a typical launch, the band is having a short film made called FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT REVISITED, which is set to premiere at Sundance.

The film doesn't have an exact plot, but it's said to mirror the original Fight for Your Right video in a lot of ways. This may not sound newsworthy, but when you hear the cast the short has just landed, you might change your tune.

For reasons I can't explain, two stars are playing each Beastie Boy, so we have Eijah Wood and Will Ferrell as Ad-Rock, Danny McBride and John C. Reilly as MCA and Seth Rogen and Jack Black as Mike D. Also allegedly appearing in the video (according to IMDB) are Orlando Bloom, Kirsten Dunst, David Cross, Will Arnett, Amy Poehler, Jason Schwartzman, Adam Scott, Rainn Wilson, Steve Buscemi, Chloë Sevigny, Alicia Silverstone, Martin Starr, Ted Danson, Rashida Jones, and R.E.M.’s Mike Mills, with the original Beastie trio making cameos as cops. Also appearing are Susan Sarandon and Stanley Tucci as "mom and dad."

Guess when you've been around as long as they have, you make a lot of friends in Hollywood. It might just be a reshoot of a music video, but I'll be damned if I'm not looking forward to seeing just how the hell this turns out.

Extra Tidbit: At one point do you cross the line from tribute to a bunch of celebrities just partying with each other?

B-E-A-S-T

if this was a "fight for you Right to Party" remake video featuring this cast it wouldnt make much since because when the video was shot the Beastie Boys were young and now they are middle aged. But a lot of these actors are much too old to play the roles as well so this may be something very different.

This sounds awesome. Love the idea and cast.

Adam Scott needs to be in more movies, not just television shows.

He played Will Ferrel's a-hole brother in Step Brothers and was on a few episodes of Eastbound and Down as the drug addict Florida scout. He is quite hilarious and I agree that he needs to be in more films.

Glad to see another Adam Scott fan out there. The Vicious Kind was criminally overlooked.

I'm a HUGE B-Boys fan, but this news doesn't intrigue me at all. Maybe I will be impressed, who knows? Same goes for the new album. Still consider Ill Communication their last GOOD album. Whole lotta Meh since then . . .
