More exciting news from our friends over at Derrick Comedy today, as it has now been announced that director Dan Eckman, writers/stars Dominic Dierkes, Donald Glover and DC Pierson, and producer Meggie McFadden will be appearing on a panel at the San Diego Comic-Con next month. According to /Film, the crew will not only be holding a panel during the convention, they will also be holding a special sneak preview screening of their Sundance sensation Mystery Team and have a booth on the show floor where fans can meet the creative minds behind one of the funniest films of the year.
Here’s the official release on their show floor presence:
Come bust kid criminals with Oakdale’s best eighteen-year-old kid detectives the Mystery Team in their storefront slash crime lab. Meet the filmmakers, take pictures with actual setpieces, and submit a mystery of your own for solving.
We couldn’t be more excited for the Derrick kids, as this is yet another great step toward their movie reaching the masses. Last month we reported on the fact that Roadside Attractions has acquired the film and is planning an extensive college tour to help promote the film. Word from the inside is that we should have more information on that (dates, locations, etc.) very soon.
For now, I would urge you to head on over to /Film, where our good friend Peter has also dug up some Comic-Con details on Richard Kelly’s The Box, James McTiegue’s Ninja Assassin and more. For more on the Con, stay tuned to our Comic-Con 2009 homepage.
