Three more actors have joined unfunny* stand-up comic Nick Swardson and TJ Miller (Cloverfield) in ShadowMachine’s R-rated stop-motion animated Hell & Back, a comedy “about two best friends who must rescue their pal when he is accidentally dragged to hell.”
Rob Riggle (“The Daily Show”, The Hangover), Brian Posehn (“The Sarah Silverman Program”, Five Year Engagement and Kumail Nanjiani (Life As We Know It) have all joined the cast.
Per Variety, “Riggle will play a 20-year old who’s starting to grow up, much to the chagrin of his friends Augie and Remy. Posehn will portray an aging heavy-metal fan stuck in the ’80s and Nanjiani will play Sal the Demon, an employee of hell.”
The film is set to begin shooting in January with Tommy Gianas (Tenacious D) and Ross Shuman directing. ShadowMachine principals Alexander Bulkley and Corey Campodonico are producing.
*fact. Though I liked him in 30 Minutes Or Less. But that was before I saw his standup, which I can never recover from.
