How do you ensure that gay audiences will flock en masse to a new comedy about two drag queens trying to save their nightclub from evil real estate developers?
Well, if you're the makers of the upcoming Dixie's, you load your cast with gay men's favorite divas.Margaret Cho
The film, slotted for release in fall 2008, will feature comedy goddesses Kathy Griffin and Margaret Cho in supporting roles, which is sort of the equivalent of casting Robert De Niro and Al Pacino in the same movie.
Add to that mix supermodel vamp Janice Dickinson - as well as Andy Dick playing "Penelope" - and queer moviegoers just won' be able to stay away.
Schedule permitting, look for Dixie's to hit the gay film festival circuit next summer before opening in theaters.
