On Ricky Gervais's blog, the comedian has posted a new video with himself and This Side of the Truth co-writer/co-director Matt Robinson. The two clear up a couple things:
1. Contrary to reports otherwise, the title is still This Side of the Truth, not Truthy Truthness.
2. The tentative release date is September 25, 2009.
Apologies for previously reporting the title had been changed to The Invention of Lying, and that the film would be released in 2010. Sometimes I forget the internet is a liar.
In case you want to hear it yourself, having learned your lesson about trusting internet words, here's the video:
I'm pretty excited about this one. Anything with Ricky Gervais, Jason Bateman, Tina Fey, Louis C.K., Christopher Guest, Jeffrey Tambor, other good people, and Patrick Stewart as narrator has to achieve at least moderate comedy success. Otherwise everything I know about funny people is wrong.
