The team of Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant have established themselves as two of Hollywood’s most sought comedy screenwriters, but up until now, the prolific duo hasn’t directed the words they’ve written for feature films. That will soon change as their newest project, comedy horror flick Hell Baby takes shape.
Rob Corddry and Leslie Bibb will co-star as a married couple who move into a house in New Orleans. But, there’s a catch! The house is totally haunted. But, wait. There’s another catch. The happy couple are expecting a baby– and apparently they’re worried about the newborn popping out as a demon. To avoid this, they enlist a pair of exorcists played by — you guessed it — Lennon and Garant! That’s triple duty for the guys who helped bring the world The State, Viva Variety, Reno 911! and so much more.
Corddry, who made a name for himself as a correspondent on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart, will next be seen Seeking a Friend for the End of the World (in theaters June 22), alongside fellow Daily Show alum Steve Carell and Keira Knightley. Bibb can currently be seen on the new ABC dramedy GCB.
