Ben Stiller on set for Tower Heist


03 November 2010

Ben Stiller has been papped on the set of his new film Tower Heist, looking dare we say it, a tad older, but still dapper in a suit talking frantically into a walky talky. The film is about a group of guys who find out they've fallen victim to a wealthy business man's scheme, and so decide to rob his high rise house. However despite the film's stressful nature, Stiller must still be having some laughs on set as his co-stars include Matthew Broderick and the always hilarious Eddie Murphy.

Talking of laughs, in other Ben Stiller news, it's been revealed by the man himself that a Les Grossman film is in the pipeline and a script is currently being written. Who can forget Tom Cruise's unexpected fantastic cameo in Tropic Thunder as the films hot-header studio producer. Well it seems his character was so well liked Stiller, his co-star in Tropic Thunder, wants to create a film based on him. However, talking to MTV, Stiller says they're still negotiating with who will play Les Grossman:

"Les Grossman is notoriously difficult to negotiate with, so we're right now negotiating with him because he wants to play himself in the film. He's kind of a bully, and he's very argumentative, and he's a little bit abusive. I want to try to get Tom Cruise to play him. So if I can get Tom Cruise, who's interested to play him, if Les will agree not to play himself, then it looks like it could be coming together."

As well as Tower Heist, due out in 2011, Stiller can be seen in Little Fockers with Robert De Niro this Christmas, and is set to appear in Help Me Spread The Goodness, which he will also direct as well as Shawn Levy's The Hardy Men.
