New Trailer: Death at a Funeral

Yeah, I know.  It's only been a couple of years since the dark British comedy (directed by American Frank Oz) was in theaters.  But a remake is already nearing completion, this one directed by Neil LaBute (Nurse Betty). 
 
In this story, which doesn't seem to have changed an iota by crossing the pond, a family is brought together by the death of their patriarch... and then summarily torn apart as scads of dirty little secrets are exposed along the way.  To LaBute's credit, he was able to get diminutive actor Peter Dinklage to play the same role - that of the deceased's gay lover - that he did in the English version.
 
The film stars Chris Rock, Luke Wilson, James Marsden, Danny Glover, Tracy Morgan, Martin Lawrence, Columbus Short, Zoe Saldana, Regina Hall and Loretta Devine.    It's scheduled to be released on April 16, 2010.
