Here’s your first look at an ensemble project we first wrote about on the old S&A site in 2010, which is currently scheduled for a release in January 2013.
Produced be Charles B. Wessler, it features 25 short segments directed by several different directors like Patrik Forsberg, Peter Farrelly, Elizabeth Banks, Steven Brill, Steve Carr, Rusty Cundieff, James Duffy, Griffin Dunne, James Gunn, Bob Odenkirk and Brett Ratner.
For Halle’s segment, directed by Farrelly, here’s how he describes it:
”Halle Berry and Stephen Merchant play the ultimate game of Truth or Dare. They meet through an online dating service [and later] go to a restaurant… After some small talk, Halle Berry is sick of it, and says, ‘Let’s play Truth or Dare.’ They start one-upping each other in a very very funny way. The turkey baster is verrrrrrry interesting.”
And here’s how he describes Terrence Howard’s piece:
”It’s the first all-black basketball team to host a championship, in the ’50s… They’re playing an all-white team, and they’re terrified. Terrence Howard has to convince these 6’8” black guys that they’re better than these 5’9” white guys.”
We posted some new photos of the omnibus project a few days ago; now the film’s first trailer (redband) has surfaced, and can be watched in full below:
