Zach Galifianakis and Jon Hamm Will Be ‘Keeping Up With the Joneses’ For ‘Superbad’ Director Greg Mottola

Written by on March 15, 2014 

The feature pairing we’ve always wanted looks to be coming true, as Zach Galifianakis and Jon Hamm are looking to square off for a new comedy. With Superbad director Greg Mottola attached, THR reports that Fox 2000 have acquired the project Keeping Up With the Joneses for the duo to star in. The project follows a couple in a standard suburban neighborhood who quickly find out that their neighbors are actually undercover government agents. No word yet on when this’ll go into production, but one can see the pair below on Between Two Ferns.

Next up, Peter Billingsley has finalized his cast for the Vince Vaughn-led Term Life and a reunion is in store. Deadline reports that Vaughn’s Made and Swingers co-star Jon Favreau has joined the project in an undisclosed role. Also starring Jonathan Banks, Taraji P. Henson, Shea Whigham, Hailee Steinfeld, Bill Paxton, Mike Epps, William Levy and Jordi Molla, the film follows Vaughn, whose being hunted by the mob and dirty cops and takes out a million-dollar life insurance policy for his daughter. With it not being put into place for three weeks, he must struggle to stay alive.

Meanwhile, Ed Helms is eying yet another comedy, this time over at Lionsgate. The Wrap reports he’s set lead Epic Fail, a project he developed with Nicky Weinstock and will be written by Mike Arnold and Chris Poole. The project will follow “an elite but highly unorthodox special forces team that takes their dysfunction and excessive firepower on a desperate mission to save America, led by the only soldier more badass and more mustachioed than a Navy SEAL — The Walrus.” As the title suggests, it all sounds fairly silly, but hopefully it will also contain some laughs.

Lastly, continuing in the comedy genre, THR is reporting that WB have selected their Horrible Bosses and We’re the Millers star Jason Sudeikis to lead a remake of Fletch. Made popular by Chevy Chase in the 1985 film, the story tracks the investigator I. M. Fletcher and this version is said to be in the line of  Beverly Hills Cop or Midnight Run. While we can’t say we’re greatly looking forward to such a remake, Sudeikis is a strong comedic talent, and we could see him fit the role.

Which of the above projects are you most looking forward to?
