If I had to name the Terry Gilliam movie with the most standard plot I’d immediately jump to The Brothers Grimm – two traveling con men pretend to battle monsters and find themselves in a position where they’re called upon to actually fight monsters. Take out ‘fight monsters’ and put in ‘perform exorcisms’ and ta-da! you have the plot of a pending Zach Galifianakis movie.
Shock Til You Drop’s Ryan Rotten got the scoop on this film, called Miracle Workers, from producer Michael Aguiler. There’s a script, and Galifianakis is ‘attached’ to the project, but there’s no director currently. Maybe the script is amazingly funny, but from here – based on just a quick description given at a premiere afterparty – it sounds like Galifianakis has attached himself to yet another movie that feels below his comic level.
