Stiller and Witherspoon in… Volcano Action "Comedy"

| Filed under: Reese WitherspoonFilm FlickersBen Stiller

A wacky disaster comedy starring Ben Stiller, Reese Witherspood, and a volcano?

Sounds like box office gold?

More like box office meltdown!

We actually can't make much sense of the premise for Cameron Crowe's next flick, but we'll give it a shot.

Something about Ben Stiller as a disgraced weapons specialist sent to Hawaii to launch a satellite. He requires the help of the islanders, who are willing to oblige under the condition that their island gods be appeased. And of course, the only way to appease gods is to feed a volcano a virgin sacrifice - or, you know, as close as you can get to that these days. Ben Stiller runs into former flame Reese Witherspoon and we're sort of hoping she ends up in the lava.

Hollywood must be hurting.

    This sounds reminiscent of Joe Versus the Volcano (it had Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan in it.)



  4. 4

    Totally Joe vs. The Volcano.

    this sounds like a not so good version of Joe versus the Volcano



  15. 15

    This sounds a lot like Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan's
    Joe Versus the Volcano that came out back in 1990



  16. 16

    Sounds like Joe & the Volcano & what a stupid movie that was. If Hollywood is hurting for dollars maybe they will finally stop paying out big bucks to so called actors who are no better than actors in a high school play.



  17. 17

    Well it's a Cameron Crowe film, so I'll probably go see it.



  18. 18

    iI LOVE BEN STILLER!!! :D

    Considering this is a Gossip Site…you should have known this already but it sounds like a recreation of Joe vs. The Volcano with Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks.



  20. 20

    She's a good actress…I'm getting a little tired of him though. The plot sounds pretty stupid….another insult from Hollywood….expect the people that just lost shitloads of money in this country to go overpay to see their crap.



  21. 21

    Sounds like Joe vs the Volcano. Another lame rewrite. And those screenwriters get paid how much?



  22. 22

    I love both of them. I want to see Reese play a badass again like in " Freeway" or something really scary.



  23. 23

    This just goes to show that even a great comic like Ben Stiller can start to believe his own hype, SON! I predict this movie ENDS his Hollywood film career and sends him back to TV for a long, torturous end!!!! Listen to Monkey Brains, Ben! Do NOT make this movie!!!!!!!!

    I hate Ben Stiller!! I can't believe she would agree to do a movie with him! End of credible career!



  25. 25

    Remember Joe Vs the Volcano with Tom Hanks & Meg Ryan? That was a weird movie, but I loved it. This movie sounds similar, but Ben Stiller is NO Tom Hanks.



  26. 26

    stfu, reese is amazing



  27. 27

    it worked for tom hanks and meg ryan in joe versus the volcano. eh? eh?



  28. 28

    This is very Joe Versus the Volcano



  29. 29

    Love Reese. Hope it doesn't flop….

    Actually Joe vs. volcano was a movie about a guy who's life sucked and he was diagnosed with some terminal disease or something. He was the one who was going to throw himself into the volcano. This was too long ago…like late 80's early 90's. I'm going to check this out on IMDB. I remember that it did suck though.



  31. 31

    Love them!



  32. 32

    Words cannot describe my disdain for that talentless Ben Stiller. If not for Mom and Dad, he would've grown up to be a suit salesman.



  33. 33

    I love them both, but if this is a remake of that old movie, then it will suck for sure. Make something exciting and out there, scary.
    I'm freaking bored here.

    Did anyone see Joe Vs The Volcano back in the late 80s starring Meg Ryan and Tom Hanks? Sounds like the same crappy premise.



  35. 35
