Freshman Roommates http://www.rottento...freshman_roommates/
A young man (TJ Miller) drunkenly responds to an online ad that most would consider to be spam, but ends up being a real offer from a prince (Tracy Morgan) looking to cash in on his African fortune. John Mulaney and Nick Kroll provide the screenplay for the Paramount Pictures comedy.
Expected release date 2013 [xaviergisz, Jul 06 2012]

       This sounds sort of like the plot to “An Alan Smithee Film: Burn Hollywood Burn” (link).

       Perhaps he could team up with a bespectacled scientist who, after almost two decades of work, has hit upon a means of extending the human penis by a significant factor. Bewildered and discouraged by the lack of interest from potential funders, he is delighted to find that a Nigerian prince is offering him sufficient funds to commercialize his discovery.

       And lose weight naturally at the same time. The villain could be the head of a shadowy organization known only as “T.H.E.Y.”. His introductory scene concludes with him slamming his fist on the table and announcing “We DON'T want the public to know about this secret!”

       A slew of cheap derivitaves would immediately follow containing visions where the directors hadn't quite understood the original premise:
• A film in which it turns out the Pope is NOT a catholic.
• A documentary film that shows the migratory behaviour of the grizzly bear as from its home in the forest, it tries to identify and reach the nearest public convenience.
• A heartwarming tale in which purveyors of fine aggregate, and silica-based building materials are shipped out to Dubai and neighboring territories in order to establish new orders supplying these materials to the local inhabitants.
• A penetrating documentary exploring the very latest in the science of monitoring the prevailing cook/broth ratio in different societal contexts.

       I've just received a confirmed order for 400 million short tons of clean ice from an Inuit community council. Can you please pass on contact details for the prince, so I can cut him in on the investment opportunity? I figure we'll need maybe $1.25M initially, for warehouse space and shipping pre- booking fees.

       Selling sand to the ME is something Australia is already doing [link]. I had also heard of other companies selling swimming pool filter sand there as well.

       I thought this was going to be an idea about [Dr. Curry], for some reason.

       [blissy] I just spit my tea across the room as I thought the same EXACT thing!!!!! xox

       Yes [po] but you know African Prince...it conjures up old memories.
