Tracy Morgan and Luke Wilson are set to tickle bones with their comedic role in the upcoming movie, ‘The Shitheads'.

Macon Blair, who made his debut in field of direction with Sundance winner ‘I Don't Feel at Home in This World Anymore', will be directing this movie too. The movie follows a pair of deeply unqualified bozo, who has been appointed with a task to transport a troubled teenage millionaire to a rehabilitation center. "Mayhem and general shenanigans ensue but it has not been confirmed at this time whether or not important life lessons are also learned," says the film announcement.

Alex Orr and Rough House Pictures' Brandon James will produce the movie alongside with Jillian Apfelbaum from Imperative Entertainment. Imperative's Dan Friedkin and Bradley Thomas will serve as executive producers, along with Rough House's Danny McBride, Jody Hill and David Gordon Green, Orr's Fake Wood Wallpaper and Jeremy Saulnier and Blair's Bonneville Films.

Imperative Entertainment's Friedkin and Thomas in a statement told that they are really excited to continue their mission to support filmmakers like Macon, who have an incredibly unique vision for the movie that is both hilarious and harrowing. They further said that they are equally thrilled to partner with the team at Rough House, whose taste and talent they admire tremendously.

Financing of the film was arranged and packaged by CAA, which also reps Macon Blair, Tracy Morgan and Like Wilson and Rough House. CAA will also rep the movie's domestic distribution rights.

John Atwood from Imperative Entertainment negotiated the deal and Jasmine Daghighian will serve as the creative executive to the movie.
