Chris Rock might be funny as hell, but let's face it, his movies...Not so much.

For the most part "Saturday Night Live" alums have gone on to successful movie careers. Eddie Murphy, Adam Sandler and Will Ferrell are pretty much money in the bank. But when it comes to Rock, his movies bomb.

Perhaps his latest project, "Death at a Funeral," will change his luck.

Rock is onboard to star, co-write and produce this adaptation of a British comedy about misplaced cadavers, bare butts and family drama. Rock will reportedly work with a predominantly black cast and shooting is scheduled to begin next spring.

Rock, who is currently providing the voice for Marty the zebra in "Madagascar: Escape 2 Africa," was last seen on screen in a small role in Sandler's bomb "You Don't Mess With the Zohan." His last starring role was in 2007's  "I think I Love My Wife," which he also produced and co-wrote.

Does anybody out there like Chris Rock movies?
