Well if you thought that The Hangover was filled with drugs, sex, vile language, tigers and babies, then imagine what it would be like if there was a female version of that. Well it’s happening. Waynce McClammy, director of the viral videos from Jimmy Kimmel Live segments I’m Fucking Matt Damon and I’m Fucking Ben Affleck was supposed to be making his directorial debut with Desperados. Unfortunately things never came to light and now Alvin and the Chipmunks: The Squeakuel director Betty Thomas has stepped up to the plate and will helm the director’s chair for this comedy.
Desperados is described as a “female Hangover” in which three women travel to Las Vegas “to set right a situation that had one of the women leaving a scathing message for a man she actually likes.” Isla Fisher is attached to star; the studio is currently looking to fill the other two lead roles. The script by Ellen Rapoport (The Jamie Kennedy Experiment) landed on the Black List of Hollywood’s best unproduced screenplays two years ago.
Will it be as successful as The Hangover? What do you think?
