For all you Leslie Nielsen fans, Nielsen filmed his last project, a comedy on DVD, which will be out next year. We received a press release about the details and info on the film:
New York (Thursday, December 9, 2010) — Screen Media Films is proud to announce the acquisition of Stonerville, to be released on January 11, 2011 on DVD. The hysterical stoner comedy is the final film of Leslie Nielsen, the recently departed comedian.
Starring Leslie Nielsen, Pauly Shore, Patrick Cavanaugh, and Phil Morris, Stonerville tells the story of comedian and self-proclaimed “King of YouTube” Slam Slamsky who wants to make it big in mainstream advertising, even though his sense of humor and frequent pot use are not exactly in sync with the stuffy suits he meets. Things only get worse when a disastrous attempt to impress an executive results in Slam losing both his job and his girlfriend. He finds new inspiration in Erica, a smokin’ hottie who is a fan of his viral videos. Stonerville is a hilarious comedy about living online, getting high, and growing up—though not necessarily in that order!

“Screen Media is proud to be a part of Leslie Nielsen’s legacy. He was one of comedy’s brightest stars, so it is only fitting that he take on his final role in the hysterical Stonerville, a film that pays tribute to the man who made us all laugh” says Robert Baruc, Screen Media Films, President.
