The Ford brothers Rob and Doug are launching their Hollywood careers by piggy-backing on two other iconic Canadian comedy brothers, Bob and Doug McKenzie.
Back in the 80s the McKenzie brothers were pioneers in using humour in educational videos with their long-running series The Great White North, a fixture on PBS for many years. They parlayed that success into the big-screen cult classic, Strange Brew.
Anonymous insiders have confided to our sources that the remake will be given a superficial update but will remain true to the basics of the original. For example, the beer and smokes of the 80s will be replaced by vodka shooters and tokes in the update.
