Justin Theroux to Rewrite and Direct Swear to God


Actor and screenwriter Justin Theroux will direct the Warner Bros. comedy Swear to God. Deadline has the news, saying that he’ll also rewrite the project, set to star Will Ferrell and Steve Carell.

The film, originally written by Alan Cohen and Alan Freedland (Due Date), will feature Ferrell as a narcissist who believes that God has spoken to him.

Ferrell can be seen on the big screen this week opposite Zach Galifianakis in The Campaign. Carell, meanwhile, just starred with Keira Knightley in Seeking a Friend at the End of the World and with Meryl Streep in Hope Springs. Both actors will first reteam for Parmount Pictures’ Anchorman: The Legend Continues.

Swear to God will be produced by Ferrell, Gary Henchy and Adam McKay.
