Ben Stiller seems to be going in various deviant directions when it comes to his choices in films. Comedy stars are all shifting to more serious tones in the last couple of years. Robin Williams has been doing that for sometime now. But he has not really tasted a consistent success with that.
There are also several other stars vying for serious roles like Jim Carrey, Adam Sandler and even Will Ferrell. Ben Stiller seems to be getting a little on the quirky side with Noah Baumbachâ€™s film Greenberg. He has also signed Mark Romanekâ€™s dark comedy called The Voices.
The Voices has been called one of the best unproduced scripts of last year. The creepy yet humorous story follows Jerry Hickfang as he accidentally kills a woman he works with at a bathroom fixtures factory. But then he begins to take advice from his foul mouthed cat and dog. But this is not going to be one of those silly Eddie Murphy movies.
So this will be something interesting to see what he does with Ben Stiller. The last time he totally changed Robin Williams into a psychotic killer in One Hour Photo. Now we will have to wait and see who will play the voices of Mr Whiskers and Bosco.
