First Set Photos for DINNER FOR SCHMUCKS Starring Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, and Zach Galifianakis

     December 2, 2009


The first set photos from Jay Roach’s upcoming comedy Dinner for Schmucks have landed online and while they’re not much to look at, they are a nice reminder that we have Steve Carell, Paul Rudd, and Zach Galifianakis starring together in what is some kind of blessed comedy trinity for which we should give thanks every night.  Dinner for Schmucks has a serious shot at being the funniest film of 2010 once you factor in its premise:

Dinner for Schmucks is a remake of director Francis Veber’s César award-winning 1998 comedy Le dîner de cons (Literally translated as “The Dinner of Dumbasses”) concerns a renowned publisher who encourages his friends to find the most pathetic guests possible for their weekly dinner party.

That premise essentially gives Carell, Rudd, and Galifianakis carte blanche to be as hilarious as possible and if this film doesn’t make someone die from laughter, I’ll consider it a disappointment.  Hit the jump to check out the set photos and we’ll keep bringing you more on this film as we get it.  Dinner for Schmucks is slated to hit theaters on July 23, 2010.
