Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy in a photo from Tower Heist

Director Brett Ratner (ugh, RUSH HOUR) has gathered together a decent cast for his next film TOWER HEIST. With stars like Alan Alda, Ben Stiller and Eddie Murphy (try to forget about his last several films) this could be one of those dark horse comedies that surprise us this year. Then again, it could be pretty lame because quite frankly, not all Ben Stiller films are created equal. The film follows a crooked investor (Alda) who rips off all his clients in a Ponzi-type scheme. Stiller, Murphy and a few others team up to uncover the investors’ money in his upscale residence. The film also stars: Zachary Levi, Casey Affleck, Tea Leoni, Matthew Broderick, Gabourey Sidibe and Jon Voight so it might not be so terrible, but we’ll reserve judgement til later.
TOWER HEIST is set to hit theaters on November 4th, 2011.
