by Scott Weinberg | Monday, Oct. 24 2005

According to The Hollywood Reporter, those crazy Broken Lizard guys are about to mount a comedy called "Beerfest" over at Warner Bros. They're describing it as "Fight Club," only with beer-drinking games instead of bare-knuckle brawlings.

"Warner Bros. Pictures, which has become the Broken Lizards' home studio, is acquiring the project from Sony, where it originally was set up, with an aim to shoot the movie in January in New Mexico. "Beerfest" tells the tale of two brothers who go to Oktoberfest in Germany and stumble upon a super-secret, centuries-old beer games competition, described as a "Fight Club" with beer games. After the brothers are dealt a humiliating defeat, they return to the U.S. and assemble a group of all-star beer drinkers in order to make a triumphant return."

Broken Lizard the comedy troupe behind "Super Troopers" and "Club Dread," and their members include Jay Chandrasekhar, Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme, Paul Soter, and Erik Stolhanske.
