It looks like “Shaun of the Dead” and “Hot Fuzz” director Edgar Wright might be teaming up with comedian Jack Black on the project “Them” reports Slashfilm.
Director Mike White (“Year of the Dog”), who’s co-writing the script with Wright, says “It’s like a conspiracy theory comedy horror movie…once our movies are finally out there and put to bed, we’re going to get together and hopefully bang it out.”
What about Black’s involvement? “This thing with Edgar may very well involve Jack [Black]. Yeah, I would like to keep doing stuff with Jack, he’s a good friend of mine.”
Wright adds “It’s early days, but I’m sure if it happens, Jack will be involved.” He also talks about the plot – “It’s based on the Jon Ronson book, I’m not sure if you’ve read the book but it’s a nonfiction extremists and wild conspiracy theories. And the idea is to set the film in a world where some of these things exist.”
