DUMBBELLS, the buddy comedy starring comedic legend Carl Reiner, eccentrics Tom Arnold, Jay Mohr, Jaleel White and Andy Milonakis, and celebrated models Fabio and Hoyt Richards, has been acquired by GoDigital Inc. for a theatrical day-and-date release for January 10, 2014. The film also stars Taylor Cole (CSI: Miami, The Green Hornet), Brian Drolet, Mircea Monroe (Hart of Dixie), and Olivia Dudley (Chernobyl Diaries). The film is directed by Christopher Livingston, produced by Full Blitz Entertainment (the upcoming Lovesick with Chevy Chase). Joe and Gavin Maloof are making a cameo appearance in the film.  Drolet and Richards co-wrote the script.

DUMBBELLS follows Chris Long (Drolet), an ex-NCAA star turned trainer who finds new purpose when his gym’s shallow new owner, Jack (Richards), unleashes a lucrative plan to turn the neglected business into a reality show. When Chris’ complacent peers resist this new direction, he and Jack form an unlikely alliance that allows them to face the demons of their pasts and ultimately, save their gym’s future.

“This film is carried by a unique pairing of comedic misfits that have all contributed an individual stamp on pop culture,  “We have no doubt that their fan bases – though traditionally, somewhat disjointed – will love seeing their favorites as a part of DUMBBELLS’ hilarious ensemble.”

In addition:

“We are beyond excited and looking forward to consummating the marriage between DUMBBELLS and the nice folks over at GoDigital,” said the filmmakers in a joint statement. “We’ve heard making babies is a lot of fun and we have no doubt that this one will be damn good looking.”
