After working with Ed Helms for quite some time for the Hangover
trilogy, Lawrence Sher is coming up with his own directorial debut
titled Bastards. This new comedy film will also feature Ed Helms in
the lead and will resonate some of the Hangover DNA as well.
Talking about this new movie, Ed Helms said, "I think Larry very
much has his own comedic voice. Obviously, we were all heavily
influenced by Todd, because we all spent months in the trenches
together, and Todd was calling the shots. And I think Todd has a
really unique and singular voice."
"Larry, kind of, on his own, has his own thing going. That said,
we're all kind of a reflection of Todd in some way." Ed Helms added
Ed Helms also said that as soon as he came to know that it is
his long time friend Lawrence Sher, who is going to direct the
film, he signed in for the project.
"Larry is one of my best friends in the business. We made all
three Hangovers together, we went to Thailand, we've been through
all this insane shit together." Said Helms.
"So when it came time for him to direct, I was like, 'Hell yes!
Sign me up' And obviously, he has a beautiful eye, because the
Hangover movies look beautiful, and he gets comedy! He knows how to
shoot, and gets comedy." Helms explained.
