Dinner for Schmucks Finally Underway

Jay Roach’s comedy “Dinner for Schmucks” is finally getting into production says Variety.

A remake of Francis Veber’s 1998 French comedy “Le Diner des cons”, the project suffered a number of setbacks when original star Sacha Baron Cohen had to pull out.

Steve Carell and Paul Rudd have now cleared their schedules for the project when it kicks off shooting in October.

Spyglass Entertainment and Paramount Pictures are set to release the project.
