Tommy Davidson has been set in Richard Reid’s indie comedy Frat Pack, described as “Road Trip meets Bridesmaids meets Project X with a little American Pie thrown in. Davidson, the comedian who was probably best known for his Sammy Davis, Jr. and Michael Jackson impressions on the iconic variety show In Living Color (which also introduced a wide berth of fans to the comedy of Jim Carrey and Jamie Foxx … hey guys, how about a reunion show?), will play an overly protective father with a hair-trigger temper in the story that centers on a shy British bachelor who is dragged on a wild road trip to a frat party.
The project, which is being directed by Jo Marr (Night Train, Van Wilder 2) also stars screenwriter/producer Reid (Tulip Fever). The project will go before the cameras next month in Toronto and is eyeing a late 2015 release.
Michael Phililp also producers for Film Tiger, Scene Capital and Attention Seeker Entertainment. Davidson is repped by Innovative Artists.
