Farley brothers prep "SNL"-packed satire

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - The younger brothers of Chris Farley are about to start shooting a satire that will feature many of the late comedian’s friends and colleagues from “Saturday Night Live.”

“Hollywood and Wine” is about a Hollywood chef and an aspiring actress who embark on a get-rich quick scheme that results in mistaken identify and a run-in with the mob.

Actors Kevin and John Farley, and John’s wife Jennifer Farley, collaborated with scribe Matt Berman on “Wine.” Kevin Farley is co-directing the independently financed project with Berman. Shooting begins soon in Pittsburgh.

Several former “SNL” cast members will appear alongside the brothers in the comedy, including Chris Kattan, David Spade, Norm MacDonald, Horatio Sanz and Chris Parnell, according to producers.

Also joining the cast are Chazz Palminteri, Vivica Fox, Pamela Anderson, Jeremy London, and Nicky Whelan.

The two brothers have worked together in a variety of TV and film projects, including the upcoming indie comedy “The Gold and the Beautiful.” Their older brother, Chris, died of an overdose 10 years ago.
