‘Night’ time for SNL spoof

Paramount and Lorne Michaels’ Broadway Pictures will begin shooting Monday in L.A. on the comedy “A Night at the Roxbury.”

Peter Markle will direct the low-budget feature, which is based on a recurring Saturday Night Live sketch about two head-bopping, nightclub habitues.

Amy Heckerling is producing the film, along with SNL creator Michaels. Marie Cantin is co-producer.

Will Ferrell and Chris Kattan will reprise the “Roxbury Guys” roles they originated on the longrunning NBC show. Fellow SNL regular Molly Shannon also stars.

The picture is written by Steve Koren, Ferrell and Kattan.

“Roxbury” follows in the footsteps of such SNL feature spinoffs as “The Blues Brothers,” “Wayne’s World” and “The Coneheads,” as well as the commercial flops “It’s Pat” and “Stuart Saves His Family.”

Markle’s directing credits include “Youngblood,” “Bat 21” and “Wagons East.”

Heckerling directed Par’s 1995 surprise hit “Clueless,” “Look Who’s Talking,” “National Lampoon’s European Vacation” and “Fast Times at Ridgemont High.”

Ferrell, who joined “SNL” two years ago, will next appear in the indie feature “Men Seeking Women,” with Grant Shaud.

Kattan, who joined SNL in March 1996, has guest-starred on network shows including “NewsRadio” and “Grace Under Fire,” as well as HBO’s “Def Comedy Jam.”

Shannon’s credits includes appearances on the “The John Larroquette Show,” “Twin Peaks” and “Ellen.”
