Paul Rudd and Zach Galifianakis, who both star in Paramount’s upcoming Dinner for Schmucks, will reteam for the studio’s comedy Will.
Little Miss Sunshine helmers Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton are directing, with Will Ferrell and Adam McKay’s Gary Sanchez on board to produce.
The story follows an ordinary guy (Rudd) who lives in a world where people’s lives and destinies are being written by writers in Heaven. The man wakes up one day to find that his heavenly writer (Galifianakis) has decided to no longer draft his life, and he must go about his day unscripted, ending up on a journey to fulfill his hidden potential.
Demetri Martin wrote the script.
