BROKEN SPINDLE STUDIOS announced yesterday that filming of the first Captain Pleonasm feature, which had been scheduled for release in August, has been temporarily suspended as a result of a dispute with star Theodore Naphtha. Sources at the studio say that Naphtha was unhappy with some of the dialogue in the rewritten script and demanded additional “stupid pay” before he would speak the lines. Naphtha, a classically trained Shakesperean actor, is best known for his role as Irv in the 2006 comedy Herb and Irv Hit Themselves on the Head with Hammers. There is no word yet on whether this delay will affect the new darker reboot of the Captain Pleonasm franchise, which is being filmed concurrently for scheduled release in September.
