Jonah Hill and comedian Louis C.K. will play Ricky Gervais’ neighbors in the Warner Bros. comedy “This Side of the Truth” says Reuters.
The story centers on Mark (Gervais), an average guy who discovers his newfound ability to tell untruths in a world where lying doesn’t exist, and uses the skill in his effort to seduce a woman (Jennifer Garner) who is way out of his league.
Hill will play Mark’s humorous neighbor who also suffers from depression, while Louis C.K. will play Mark’s loser best friend. Rob Lowe also stars.
Gervais, who marks his feature directing debut with the film, is co-writing and co-directing with Matt Robinson. Production is set to begin in April.
