Watch: Fame Is A Disease In First Trailer For David Cross' Directorial Debut 'Hits'

Remember Antoine Dodson? He was the guy who, after an impromptu appearance on a local news show, became an instant (internet) celebrity and for five hot minutes burned brightly around the world before fading away. Such is fame these days, and it’s in that environment that “Arrested Development” star David Cross has delivered his feature length directorial debut, “Hits.”

Originally premiering at the Sundance Film Festival last year, Matt Walsh leads the movie as regular guy living in a small town in upstate New York who finds his rant at City Hall has suddenly gone viral, and soon, everyone wants a piece. As far as targets for comedy go, the current bar of fame is pretty low hanging fruit, though the film’s ensemble of players, which includes Michael Cera, Amy Sedaris, Wyatt Cenac and David Koechner, is enough to capture our interest.

No release date yet, but it looks like “Hits” will have some kind of BitTorrent release. [SplitSider]
