Matt Walsh, Timothy Simons to hit the field as 'Red Shirts' in football comedy

Between Veep and A Better You (not to mention the hit Hollywood film Into The Storm), Matt Walsh is super busy. Now, the comedian is teaming up with his Veep costar Timothy Simons in order to make a comedy film about football. The movie is titled Red Shirts and it's being produced by Ben Stiller's Red Hour Films. That's all we know as of now as Variety reports the log line is being kept under lock and key. For now though, we can speculate as to what the plot will be about. Red shirting is an age old college football move for teams to maintain a certain player's eligibility. Perhaps the idea will follow Simons as he repeatedly gets red shirted by his coach, played by Walsh, and they have it out. Whatever the story is, I'm sure it'll be funny. That's how comedies work after all.
