Balls of Fury moves to Rogue

Balls of Fury, which was originally set up at New Line Cinema, will now be handled by Rogue Pictures. Dan Fogler, who won a Tony for his role in The 25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee, has been cast in the lead role. The movie was written by Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant, with Garant set to direct. The story centers on a super-great ping pong player who comes to disgrace in the sport and is relegated to displaying his abilities in Las Vegas. One day, though, the CIA enlists him for a comeback. Lennon is said to be cast for a major role in the film as well.
