Filed under: Entertainment — Ryann Hayman @ 11:38 am


Chris Rock is putting his weight behind a re-imagining of the 2007 comedy “Death at a Funeral” from Screen Gems and Sidney Kimmel Entertainment (SKE) reports Variety.


      The comedian will team with co-writer Aeysha Carr to write the script, which is based on the SKE-produced original penned by Dean Craig and directed by Frank Oz.


      The story follows a funeral ceremony that leads to the digging up of shocking family secrets, as well as misplaced cadavers and indecent exposure. While the original was set in Britain, the new film will take place in an urban American setting.


      Screen Gems and SKE are currently seeking directors and plan to begin production next spring.
