Adam Duritz, Broken Lizard making film

Counting Crows singer producing 'Freeloaders'

Comedy troupe Broken Lizard is teaming up with Counting Crows lead singer Adam Duritz on the bigscreen comedy “Freeloaders.”

Story revolves around five guys and a girl who live in the lap of luxury in a rock star’s mansion. But their sweet situation is threatened when the rock star decides to sell the home.

Dan Rosen wrote the screenplay with the Gigolo Aunts lead singer Dave Gibbs. Rosen is attached to direct, while Duritz is producing.

Broken Lizard is composed of Erik Stolhanske, Paul Soter, Steve Lemme, Kevin Heffernan, Jay Chandrasekhar and producers Richard Perello and Julia Dray. Although the comedy troupe behind “Beerfest” and “Club Dread” has a deal at Warner Bros., they are independently financing “Freeloaders.”

Shooting is scheduled to begin in mid-January.

Broken Lizard also is writing a half-hour comedy series based on Rob Carlton’s hit Aussie series “Chandon.” The project, titled “Brilliant Pictures,” will be produced in conjunction with Lionsgate TV for Fox.

Show centers on a documentarian with delusions of grandeur who pays the bills as a videographer while looking for his next great subject.

Broken Lizard, whose credits also include “Puddle Cruiser” and “Super Troopers,” is in post-production on the “The Slammin’ Salmon.”
