It's Official! Les Grossman is going to be returning to the big screen. This time around the entire movie will be about him.
Paramount Pictures and MTV Films announced today that they are developing a movie around producer Les Grossman.
Tom Cruise portrayed Les Grossman in Ben Stiller's Tropic Thunder and brought him back on Sunday during the 2010 MTV Movie Awards. His character stole the show which is probably why they jumped on making a movie on his character.
Said Ben Stiller: “Les Grossman's life story is an inspiring tale of the classic human struggle to achieve greatness against all odds. He has assured me he plans to quote, ‘F**king kill the sh*t out of this movie and make Citizen f**king Kane look like a piece of crap home movie by the time we are done.’ I am honored to be working with him.”
Grossman, best known as a mega producer, has most recently mentored talents such as Rob Pattinson and Taylor Lautner. In 2008, Grossman was introduced to the masses by Stiller in the comedy “Tropic Thunder” where the famed producer had a cameo playing himself.
When asked what the screenplay was about Grossman responded: “To quote my great friend Kirk Lazarus, ‘I don’t read the script, the script reads me.’”
This movie is going to be hilarious! Can't wait till Tom Cruise puts that fat suit back on.
