Furry Vengeance For Dick Van Dyke!
Brendan Fraser comedy adds cast

09 July 2009  |  Written by Owen Williams  |  Source: Hollywood Reporter

submit to reddit

The full cast of family comedy Furry Vengeance has been revealed by The Hollywood Reporter: Brendan Fraser will be joined by Dick Van Dyke, Ken Jeong, Samantha Bee and Brooke Shields!

This will be Shields' first movie role (to see the inside of a cinema) for ten years, in a plot that sees her playing Fraser's wife. Fraser himself plays a real-estate agent battling a plague of racoons on some prime real estate. 

Director Roger Kumble previously made the rather good Cruel Intentions (and its awful DTV sequel), The Sweetest Thing, and College Road Trip

Frankly, it's hard to get excited. But this sounds kind of like an extended version of the Bill Murray bits from Caddyshack, which could work... Y'know, for kids...

...from Friends was the best role Brooke Shields ever played. Joey: I'm NOT a real doctor, I'm just an Actor. Erica: My God, do the people at the hospital know about this? More

Racoons are public enemy No. 1.?
On the 8th you mentioned Tobey Maguire in a film called 'The Details' which dealt with a racoon invasion. Is it the same film or have racoons become Hollywood's new fave bad guys? Do they have WMD's? More

Mr. Williams,
That exclamation mark at the end of the first paragraph could well be the most sarcastic punctuation mark that i've ever seen. Props to you. More
