LOS ANGELES — On the heels of its popular "Not Really...The Dukes Of Hazzard: A Hardcore Parody," Vouyer Media announced it's spoofing the iconic '70's "Taxi" TV series.

Director Anton Slayer will be in the driver's seat for the production, which will be shot during the last week of March on locations in and around Los Angeles.

While many details are still under wraps, Slayer revealed that industry veteran Ron Jeremy recently inked a deal to portray Louis De Palma, the perpetually pessimistic head dispatcher of the Sunshine Cab Company made memorable by Danny DeVito.

For the project's female lead, Slayer has secured the services of Courtney Cummz, who will take the role of lovelorn Elaine O'Connor Nardos, Louis' not-so-obscure object of desire.

In addition to Jeremy and Cummz, Slayer will add several more high profile names to the cast in the weeks ahead, according to the company.

"We will definitely be announcing some provocative casting choices. This will be a great opportunity for the press to profile several A-list performers on the same production," Slayer said.

The new "Taxi' will stay true to the original show in production value.

"I'm a huge fan of the original series, and I want to do justice to it. From the vintage Checker cabs to Louis' caged-in dispatch office, everything that made the original so unique will be replicated here," Slayer added.
