"It'll be controversial," he said. "I grew up with two religions, one of which was Catholicism. So what I'm trying to do is deconstruct religion itself, because we become so committed that we're willing to kill. That seems pretty irrational." ...

The duo wrote the upcoming "Taxi" with Queen Latifah and Jimmy Fallon, "The Pacifier" with Vin Diesel and Brittany Snow, and "Herbie: Fully Loaded" with Lindsay Lohan, and just last week they sold "Balls of Fury," about a washed-up ping-pong champion forced to polish his game so he can go undercover to bust a crime lord.

"As Anthony has said before, those charges are also completely baseless." ...
