Dax Shepard and Will Arnett Going to Prison

Dax Shepard and Will Arnett will star in “You Are Going to Prison” for first-timers Carsey-Werner Films.

The Hollywood Reporter says Bob Odenkirk will direct from a screenplay by Robert Ben Garant, Thomas Lennon and Michael Patrick Jann.

The film is based on the book by Jim Hogshire and is described as a buddy comedy following a career criminal and a self-entitled rich guy who share a cell in a maximum-security prison.

It has to be said that it must be a loose adaptation since, as Esquire ut it, “you don’t want to read this book unless you’re going to do time, because you won’t be able to get the sickening images out of your head.”
