Adam Duritz, the dreadlocked lead singer of alternative rock band Counting Crows, is partnering with the Broken Lizard comedy group for Freeloaders, an indie comedy. Duritz will produce the pic. No word on whether or not Duritz and his band will contribute music to the film's soundtrack and/or score.
The film will center on five men and a women who are living the high life and inhabiting a rock star's mansion. When the rocker decides to unload the property, the roommates are forced to find other digs and their lifestyle is upended. Shooting is scheduled to begin in January. The members of Broken Lizard are working on a half-hour comedy series in conjunction with Lionsgate TV for Fox in addition to Freeloaders.
