Odenkirk and Cross Filming a Film this Summer

Bob Odenkirk will be directing and starring in Girlfriends Day with David Cross, Bryan Cranston, Amber Tamblyn, David Koechner, and Fred Armisen. Odenkirk also wrote the film with former Mr. Show writer Eric Hoffmam. This opportunity is a big deal for Odenkirk, whose last two features The Brothers Solomon and Let's Go to Prison performed so poorly that he speculated a couple years ago in And Here's The Kicker (the current Splitsider Comedy Book Club book) that he was in "directors jail" and that he'd have to earn back some clout to be able to work on a feature again. No word yet on what the plot will be but with that cast and crew, I'm pretty sure we'll all see it.

    Great news! I personally loved brothers solomon and really liked lets go to prison! 
    On a side note, A few months ago I was walking through my apartment courtyard and saw Troy (run ronnie run) Miller directing my neighbor for a reality show.
