Star Wars Fanboys Ready To Release The Force
Outsiders - February 01, 2006

Kristen Bell, Jay Baruchel, Chris Marquette and Sam Huntington are in final talks to play "Star Wars" geeks in Fanboys, a comedic drama that Kevin Spacey's Trigger Street is producing for The Weinstein Company.

The Hollywood Reporter says Kyle Newman is making his directorial debut on the feature.

The movie, written by Adam F. Goldberg and Ernest Cline, follows four "Star Wars" fanboys from the Midwest who drive across the country to honor the wish of their dying friend: to see the yet-unreleased Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace in its most optimal setting, George Lucas' Skywalker Ranch.

Dan Fogler already has been cast as one of the geeks, a hot-headed pizza boy. Shooting is scheduled to begin February 22 in New Mexico.
