Nick Swardson (30 Minutes of Less) and TJ Miller (Yogi Bear) have been cast in an upcoming R-rated stop-motion animated comedy called Hell & Back. According to Deadline the story is "about two best friends who must rescue their pal when he is accidentally dragged to hell."
I think it's safe to say we've all been dragged down to hell at some point in our lives, and there were friends who came to the rescue. The film is set to be directed by Tommy Gianas (Tenacious D) and Ross Shuman and the production company, ShadowMachine, is going to start shooting the project in January.
For those of you not familiar with ShadowMachine, it's the company has been creating episodes of Robot Chicken and Morel Orel on Adult Swim.
Both Swardson and TJ Miller have been involved with some pretty silly and stupid comedies, but they have unique voices that will work nicely for a animated movie. A stop-motion R-rated comedy could actually end up being very freakin' cool. What are your thoughts on this news?
