Andrew Dice Clay's big-screen career continues--with ups and downs.
Watch for an announcement, reportedly from Warner Bros., that the controversial comic will star in a buddy picture, "The Cop and the Comedian," playing . . . the cop.
20th Century Fox, which earlier dropped Clay's concert film from its release schedule, has now quietly dropped the foul-mouthed funnyman from its feature "The Gossip Columnist," according to sources. The Largo Entertainment project remains at the studio--but not the star.
The untitled concert film now appears headed for distribution by smallish Seven Arts. "The ink is just about dry," confirms Brenda Mutchnick, executive in charge of Seven Arts marketing, who declines to give details. A source tells us that the Diceman's famous leather jacket will figure prominently in advertising.
Another familiar Clay image--his sneering face--turns up on unauthorized T-shirts and bumper stickers, covered with a red circle and slash, plus the words "No Dice." The merchandise is being used as a fund-raising "giveaway" by the Bayview chapter of the National Organization for Women in Newport Beach.
