Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant might be mostly known for their roles as Lt. Jim Dangle and Deputy Travis Junior in the hilarious RENO 911! TV series, but they’re also two of the most sought after comedy screenwriters around, having written BALLS OF FURY, A NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM and other hit comedies together. The duo are returning now with HELL BABY, a horror/comedy that states as the poster says, “The Devil Got a Baby Mama”.
“HELL BABY, a comedy scripted by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant (NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM, RENO 911!: MIAMI) marks their co-directing debut. Jack (Rob Corddry) and Vanessa (Leslie Bibb) are an expectant couple that moves into the most haunted fixer-upper in New Orleans — a house with a deadly demonic curse. Things soon spiral out of control for Jack and Vanessa, as well as their-not-so-helpful neighbor F’Resnel (Keegan-Michael Key), Vanessa’s friendly psychiatrist (Michael Ian Black), Vanessa’s Wiccan sister Marjorie (Riki Lindhome) and the detectives assigned to look into the rising body count (Rob Huebel and PaulScheer). Only the Vatican’s elite exorcism team (Garant and Lennon) can save them — or can they?”
HELL BABY is being distributed by Millennium Entertainment and a release date will be announced soon. In the meantime, keep up with all things HELL BABY by “Liking” the film’s Facebook page.
