Morgan, Lawrence Join “Funeral” Remake

Tracy Morgan and Martin Lawrence will join Chris Rock in the remake of “Death at a Funeral” for Screen Gems and Sidney Kimmel Entertainment says The Hollywood Reporter.

Neil LaBute is directing the ensemble comedy in which a funeral ceremony turns into a debacle of misplaced cadavers and family secrets.

When things can’t get any worse, a man arrives saying he’s the dead man’s gay lover and threatens blackmail.

Loretta Devine, Ron Glass, Danny Glover, Regina Hall, James Marsden, Zoe Saldana and Columbus Short also star.

Rock, who co-wrote the script with Ayesha Carr, is producing along with Sidney Kimmel, Share Stalling, Lawrence Malkin and William Horberg.
