Stiller is King

Apr. 2, 2008by: Mike Sampson

Ben Stiller will produce and possibly star in THE RETURN OF DOUG for DreamWorks based on the upcoming Oni Press graphic novel. The story follows a guy named Doug who must return to the fantasy world he abandoned 30 years earlier. That's the logline that doesn't tell you much and details on the book are scant. There wasn't even an official listing at the Oni Press website. Anybody out there have any more details information? The book was written by Greg Erb and Jason Oremland who recently co-wrote the upcoming Disney animated film THE PRINCESS AND THE FROG. Stiller has a busy acting schedule with NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM 2 later this year and the Tom Cruise comedy HARDY MEN also on the way. Stiller has been busy producing despite his busy schedule and even has the horror flick THE RUINS in theaters this Friday. He's also producing, directing and starring in the summer's epic comedy TROPIC THUNDER.

Extra Tidbit: Wouldn't it be nice to see Stiller and Judd Apatow together again for a film?

This sounds good but as to your question...definitely not.

Stiller has been playing the same character since MARY and/or PARENTS 1; a nebbish-guy next door who encounters hellish carictures in some fantasy world which cause him to break out into wild antics which cause even more obscene and tired responses all wrapped up and resolved in 90 minutes.
If someone can reign him in, like mentioned previously or least throw out the Adam Sandler Guide to Acting book, it maybe a good film.

Also the exact opposite logline of Jumanji, which coincidentally is also a Robin Williams feature.

HOOK?


Sounds pretty much 100% exactly like the log line for Spielberg's Hook. Could be good with the right talent, but chances are good that Stiller will just act like a cartoon and ruin it.

With the right director to keep him in line, it could be all right, though. Just not very original.
