Now here's a pairing that's been gaining in popularity among the studios. Paramount Pictures is hoping to get Paul Rudd and Zach Galifianakis to co-star in their upcoming comedy, Will.
Rudd and Galifianakis for Will
Paul Rudd has already signed on, with Galifianakis still in negotiations. Directed by Little Miss Sunshine helmers Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton, Will centers on an ordinary guy (Rudd) who lives in a world where people's lives and destinies are being written by scribes in Heaven. The man wakes up one day to find that his heavenly writer has decided to no longer draft his life, and he must go about his day unscripted.
If the story sounds familiar, then you might remember that DreamWorks bought the pitch from comedian Demetri Martin way back in 2006. Paramount ended up taking control after the two companies split. The project will begin filming this spring.
Rudd and Galifianakis can be spotted together in the upcoming comedy Dinner for Schmucks.
