The next huge ensemble comedy hit coming out of Hollywood will be produced by YOU! Yes, you! Thanks to this draft, you get to play producer. Here is what you, the producer, will be choosing for your ensemble comedy... 16 Actors (Male/Female Mix However You Want, Leading/Supporting/Cameo Mix However You Want) - Actors and actresses may come from any time period in Hollywood’s history and may be living or dead. Heck, you can even have up to 3 Animated Characters/Actors make guest appearances in your film, if you so wish. Just make sure that they are appropriate for the type of comedy you are choosing (See “Sub-Genre” below). For instance, Popeye the Sailor Man and Daisy Duck probably wouldn’t be appropriate for a teen sex comedy. (Or would they? ) Writer - Can also be an actor or director. You can, but don’t have to, choose up to three Writers for your film. Director - Can also be an actor or writer. You can, but don’t have to, choose up to three Directors for your film. Title - Pick whatever you want, here. Sub-Genre (Buddy/Cop Flick, Spoof, Political Satire, Romantic Comedy, Slapstick, Family Comedy, Comedy/Fantasy Adventure, Religious Satire, Sex Comedy, Horror Comedy, etc.) - You can use these or any other Sub-Genre that you can think of, however, no two people may have the same Sub-Genre. As of now, that is all we will be choosing. However, as the draft goes along, I may think of a couple of other things for us to add. I will let everyone know. Also, if anyone has any ideas, feel free to suggest them. Why so many actors? I figured with fewer actors being chosen, most of the “big guns” would be immediately snatched up, and an ensemble full of nothing but the major comedy stars would be kinda dull. I’d like to see what kind of “out there” mix-n-match choices we can come up with. For instance...your film may have Steve Martin, Ben Stiller, or Robin Williams in starring roles, but once most of the bigger names have already been chosen by everyone, will you cast Bobcat Goldthwait in a supporting role, or will it be Judge Reinhold? As you can see, this isn’t a stuffy, serious draft. This is meant for people to simply have fun with. I haven’t decided yet how we will be judging the winner. If anyone has suggestions, once again, feel free to pass them along. As of now, there will be no time limits. Like I said, this draft won’t be all stuffy and strict. Just meant for fun. However, if someone is behind in their picks, I will private message them. The rest of us will move on and they can catch up later. Well, I suppose that is all for now. What do you guys think?

Besides Wendell himself, the field features the aforementioned Blonde Bombshells, and with a healthy per diem fee, the legendary aging Cannonball racers J.J.

The drivers take off from the starting line, as the attorney general sets up roadblocks nationwide hoping to stick it to her ex-boyfriend, while Wendell on the road picks up a cute but ditzy free spirit (Laraine Newman) who falls in love with him (and his money). As the racers move across the country, the anarchic nature of it all helps the race (and America's highways) descend into total chaos. Add in a mysterious and silent hitchhiking Tramp (Charlie Chaplin) whose appearance always results in a major calamity for the unlucky racer who picks him up. Who will survive long enough to make it to the finish line?? Is the Doomsday Tramp actually the devil in disguise?? Will Captain Chaos get his hands on America's enemies to administer some justice???
