Production begins this week in New Orleans on the horror comedy Hell Baby, which marks co-screenwriters Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garants feature film co-directorial debut.
Starring Rob Corddry and Leslie Bibb, it was announced today that joining the supporting cast is Rob Huebel, Paul Scheer, Riki Lindhome and Keegan-Michael Key.
Darko Entertainment is financing the film, which is produced by Darko Entertainments Sean McKittrick, Jeff Culotta and Ted Hamm; Principato-Youngs Peter Principato and Paul Young; and Garant/Lennon Productions.
The film is an original script from the multi-hyphenates Lennon and Garant, who have written nine feature films together including Night at the Museum, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian, and Reno 911!: Miami.
In Hell Baby, a young expectant couple moves in to New Orleans most haunted fixer-upper and calls upon The Vaticans elite exorcism team to save them from a demonic baby. Lennon and Garant portray that team.
