I don’t know how to make this small item interesting, but the cast and premise is such that it needs to be mentioned here. The movie in the works is titled, Hot Tub Time Machine and, at least according to the folks over at Cinematical, the script — written by newcomer Josh Heald — has been a hot property for a while now. It gets mentioned here because of the comedy’s cast. So far, John Cusack and Rob Corddry have been attached, and Craig Robinson (“The Office, ” Zack and Miri) and Clark Duke are in negotiations.

The premise is interesting, mostly because it’s not the sort of comedy you’d ever expect Cusack to show up in. It’s about a group of friends who get together at a ski lodge, get in the hot tub, and travel back in time 20 years to a time when men had a better shot with the womenfolk. Sean Anders (Sex Drive) had been attached as director, but now that Cusack is in, it looks like Cusack’s longtime partner, Steve Pink (who co-wrote High Fidelity and Grosse Point Blank and directed Accepted) has taken over the director’s chair.

Consider yourself informed.
