The comedy smash of Sundance 2008, Steve Coogan (NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM, TROPIC THUNDER) has teamed up with the producers of LITTLE MISS SUNSHINE and the writers of SOUTH PARK and TEAM AMERICA to bring us HAMLET 2.
This hilarious and irreverent new comedy is about a failed actor-turned-worse-high-
school-drama teacher Dana Marschz (Steve Coogan). Not only does his wife, Brie (Catherine Keener) hate him, but his students mock him and the 13-year-old critic for the school paper trashes every production he does but when the school threatens to cancel drama, he rises above it to stage the unimaginable.
Wholly original, mostly musical and widely offensive, a modern day sequel to HAMLET that is so terrible it might just work.
