Matt LeBlanc Gets Himself a New "Watch"

According to The Hollywood Reporter, NBC's Joey Tribbiani (aka Matt LeBlanc) has signed a deal with Dream Entertainment to star in a sci-fi/horror thriller entitled "The Watch," which will be directed by the guy who brought you both "Jeepers Creepers" flicks.

"Based on a original screenplay by John Claflin and Daniel Zelman, the World War II-set "Watch" revolves around a team of highly specialized soldiers sent to blow up a Nazi fuel depot, only to discover they are being hunted by an evil spirit unleashed by the Nazi's secret occult experiments."

Victor Salva is directing.

Not a bad plot, I must say. Yes, and I happen to be a big fan of LeBlanc's humor on Friends.

And as I said, this is rather interesting. I don't reckon he has a bunch of acting genre options other than comedy. But this, I reckon, will be an exception. LeBlanc would play a great soldier, I don't know why, I can just see it happening. Anyway, nice plot, good lead character, I believe, for this sort of film. For the average soldier, at least. He may not be a heroic, adventurous character, but I think he'll play more the average soldier, who has the hero inside him..

Oh, and I admire Salva. The Creepers movies were actually pretty interesting.

Sort of like the guy from Office Space in Band of Brothers.

"The Watch" is the sequel to the F. Paul Wislon novel, "The Keep," which was made into a film in the 1980's starring Jurgen Prochnow.
