Come to think of it, while "Snakes on a Plane" sounds great, "Penguins on a Plane" might be a super sequel.

Samuel L. Jackson, currently riding the wave of the juggernaut that will be "Snakes on a Plane," will lend his pipes to "Farce of the Penguins," Bob Saget's "March of the Penguins" parody set up at ThinkFilm.

Saget wrote and directed the semi-documentary, which relies on reassembled footage to tell the story of one lone penguin searching for love in the midst of a 70-mile reproductive trek. According to Variety, Saget will voice the main penguin, while the assembled vocal talent includes Lewis Black, Mo'Nique and Tracy Morgan, along with cameos from the likes of Whoopi Goldberg, Harvey Fierstein, Alyson Hannigan, Jamie Kennedy and Saget's fellow "Full House" refugees John Stamos and Dave Coulier.

Jackson will provide narration in the Morgan Freeman vein, though it's expected that "Farce" will delve a bit more into the R-rated vein.

In addition to the August release of "Snakes on a Plane," Jackson also has the drama "Black Snake Moan" set for a 2006 release.
