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

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.
