After providing a hilarious dose of surreal comedy at last year’s Sundance Film Festival, Quentin Dupieux, Eric Wareheim and Steve Little are set to do so again. While Dupieux and Little teamed for the absurdist project Wrong (which we recently saw a trailer for), Wareheim brought us Tim & Eric’s Billion Dollar Movie, but for 2013 they’ve all teamed up for another project, one that is getting an intriguing premiere.

Dupieux seems to be up to the same, welcome tricks with this one and you can check out the look below.
Sundance Film Festival begins today and Wrong Cops (parts 1-3) will screen on January 20th.
