Kevin James lines up his next film...an indie drama??

08.05.2011

Kevin James has probably not done his indie cred any favors starring in soul-sucking comedies like ZOOKEEPER, PAUL BLART and GROWN-UPS. But James is at least trying to branch out into new territory and has signed on to his next film, an indie drama set during WWII.

While to-date, James' co-stars have consisted of Adam Sandler, Vince Vaughn and a talking monkey, the comedian now has a cast that consists of Emily Watson and Ben Chaplin in LITTLE BOY. The film follows a young boy struggling with life at home as his father is sent off to the war. It's unclear what role James would play in the film but Chaplin looks to be playing his father with Watson playing the mother. The logline says the boy deals with the "cruelty of schoolteachers" so perhaps not only is James starring in the film, but starring in the film as a bad guy?

Before you start to get yourself too excited about the future of Kevin James that involves leaving retarded movies behind him, know that he's still has HERE COMES THE BOOM, the Adam Sandler produced comedy about a fat guy who gets involved with MMA, coming out the same year as LITTLE BOY.

Like Adam Sandler, I actually think Kevin James is funny. I just haven't laughed at anything of his in a long, long, long, LONG time.

So if he's switching it up like Sandler did with movies like Funny People and Punch Drunk Love, more power to him.

Agreed, after hearing about another Paul Blart or Zookeeper project when I watch an episode of King Of Queens I can't help but forgive him and laugh my buttocks off.

Changing it up

He could be good. Comedians in drama for the most part do fairly well. As long as this isn't his Punch Drunk Love all should be fine.

Come on guys, give the dude break. He is trying something different, yeah it may crash and burn, but at least he is giving it a shot. Thats more than I can say for Adam Sandler...

This will probably be his "Dreamgirls" before he goes back to doing his usual shit movie stick... that is if the film is any good to begin with...
