Hyde Park Entertainment, Image Nation Abu Dhabi, and WWE Studios announced today that they are joining up again to co-produce a comedy with the temporary working title, Untitled Celebrity Death Pool.
Ken Jeong, most famously known for his role as Leslie Chow in The Hangover trilogy, has signed on to star in the satire which centers on a struggling nightclub owner who after amassing a large debt from a loan shark, sets out to win his long-running celebrity death pool by attempting to kill his chosen celebrity, David Hasselhoff.
In addition to Hasselhoff, WWE Hall of Famer Hulk Hogan and an increasing number of other celebrities have signed on for various supporting roles and cameo appearances.
Pre-production for the film commences this September in Los Angeles, with a theatrical release anticipated for 2015. Darren Grant will direct from a script written by Peter Hoare.
