Around the World in 80 Days....(A joke?)

here's the link to the IMDb page for "Around the World in 80 Days" Staring Owen Wilson, Jakie Chan, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Rob Schneider, and more. Is this a joke, or did Frank Coraci really get all these guys together for a movie?

They are short cameo's. Yes, they got everyone in the film.

I know Arnold Schwarzenegger's part is pretty much a cameo. I think Owen Wilson did a part as a favor to Jackie.

The preview is enough to keep me away from this film... I just dont get why someone would greenlight this film.

Why wouldn't they? All the folks attached, it would be silly NOT to greenlight it.

This movie kinda reminds me of The Cannonball Run, another wacky comedy with lots of big stars. I think Jackie Chan was in that too.

This movie looks great and i can't wait to see it. Love all the actors involved, and it looks like just a fun filled movie. Arnold cameos = teh win!

Frank Coraci? Awesome ... I'm there! Hopefully it's as good as his Sandler stuff.

This movie kind of reminds me of Around the World in 80 Days (1956), another wacky comedy with a lot of big stars.

Glad to see Steve Coogan is getting work. He was great in "24 Hour Party People."

But WOW. This is the first I've heard of an ATWI80D remake.

WHY, GOD, WHY?
