Bad News Bears?

Paramount has hired Richard to helm "The Bad News Bears" with Billy Bob Thornton starring.

The new version reteams Thornton with Bad Santa writers Glenn Ficarra and John Requa. The project is a contemporary remake of Paramount's 1976 comedy, which starred Tatum O'Neal as the pitcher and Walter Matthau as the manager of a team of misfits in an ultra-competitive Little League.

Variety says the comedy is moving into 11 weeks of pre-production with filming expected to begin in late November for a 2005 release.
