While Julia Louis-Dreyfus is currently headlining Armando Iannucci‘s hilarious new HBO series Veep, she is looking to team with a star from creator’s last project, In the Loop. Deadline reports that James Gandolfini and Louis-Dreyfus are currently in talks to team for the next project from Nicole Holofcener.
Coming off yet another well-done drama with Please Give, her next project, which is currently untitled, is set-up at Fox Searchlight. Written by Holofcener, the film follows “a masseuse who falls in love with the husband (Gandolfini) of a new friend.” Not other details are known, but just the talent involved thus far has our anticipation increased.
The writer/director has a certain knack for characters and this should be a welcome return to feature films for Louis-Dreyfus, whose last live-action role was over fifteen years ago in Woody Allen‘s Deconstructing Harry. Paired with Gandolfini, I can already see great comedic chemistry.
Were you a Please Give fan? Are you looking forward to this duo starring in Holofcener’s next?
