Ricky Gervais teaming with Ben Stiller for new project?

You really can’t argue with two comedic giants teaming up, can you?

While I’m not a huge fan of Ricky Gervais, there is no doubting that the guy, when on his comedic "A" game, is one of the most gifted comedians we currently have.  Then there is the always (well, mostly), watchable Ben Stiller, who for every poor performance you get a film like TROPIC THUNDER which proves that he too is a truly talented comedic actor.

Now, according to The Guardian (via The Playlist), the two are apparently collaborating on a new project.  Gervais recently spoke to the outlet, and revealed that he’s currently working on a new project. Not only that, he specifically named Stiller during the conversation.  Sure he could simply be joking around, but all signs point to it most likely being some sort of collaboration. 

Sure, the two may have seen better days, particularly Stiller, but honestly, the idea of the two working together sounds like comedic heaven.  I’m not a huge fan of either of them, but they both seem to do similar things comedy wise, and would be a completely dynamic duo.  No real clues as to what this project will be about, but if this does pan out the way it sounds, I really can’t wait to check this thing out.

    Also agree with #1. Every single time First Blood is on TV I watch it (which has been happening a lot on AMC). Just a damn good movie. Really original protagonist and some really good antagonists too.
