Looks like you and your friends are going to need a new name for your biopic after all. Deadline reports that Tracy Morgan and Luke Wilson are set to star in The Shitheads, a dark comedy from the mind and director’s chair of I Don’t Feel At Home In This World Anymore’s Macon Blair. Based on the name, The Shitheads might sound like an edgier version Dumb and Dumber, but in fact it’s …oh actually, wait, okay, it is sort of an edgier Dumb and Dumber. The movie reportedly follows “a pair of deeply unqualified bozos who’ve been hired to transport a troubled teenage millionaire to rehab, resulting in what Deadline describes as “The Last Detail by way of Bret Easton Ellis.” Appearing on the big screen marks a new positive step in Tracy Morgan’s long road back to performance following a horrific truck crash in June 2014 (his Netflix stand-up special airs in May). What better way to celebrate the achievement than accidentally mowing down a rich teenager with a limo, probably.
