Premise: Current celebrities play Hollywood Squares regulars in a movie.
Movie is divided into 5 Days: Monday to Friday
Celebrities, except for the ‘Center Square’ (Paul Lynne’s square) rotate in and out.
Contestants will also be Celebrities, paired up for the most laughs i.e.
Triumph, The Insult Comic Dog and Jeff Dunham and his characters (1 show), Margaret Cho and BobCat Goldthwait (1 show) , Ron White and Jeff Foxworthy (1 show), Bobby Collins and Lewis Black (1 show), Louis C.K. and Wanda Sykes (1 Show). They would be playing ‘contestants’ and not themselves.

Since, like the original show, the celebrities will have the answers in front of them on a teleprompter, they would not have to memorize a script. Therefore, the movie could be shot in one weekend.
