Monster Hunter

Well I'm back! I've been too busy to post , but got up this morning in time to do a few so here we go.

Sony Pictures has set Kevin James to star in Monster Hunter, a big-scale live-action family adventure being written by Robert L. Baird and Daniel Gerson, writers of Monsters, Inc. and Curious George.

Variety says Overbrook Entertainment partners Will Smith and James Lassiter will produce the film, which is an outgrowth of the relationship they and the studio developed with James when he starred alongside Smith in the Overbrook-produced Columbia Pictures hit Hitch.

The film will be the first big star vehicle for James when he completes his eighth and final season of the hit CBS sitcom King of Queens.

He'll play a child psychologist who can actually see the monsters that torment kids from closets and under beds. He uses that skill to vanquish the beasts until he meets a particularly nasty one.

James will also star in the Neal Moritz-produced Disney comedy Field Trip and New Line's Man in Uniform. He'll next be seen in Grilled and his voice will be heard in the animated features Monster House and The Barnyard.

This guy is the most unlikely movie star I've ever seen lol.
