Michel Hazanavicius To Direct Comedy “Will” Written by Demetri Martin

(via The Hollywood Reporter)

Of all the things that one would have thought Oscar award winning writer/director Michel Hazanavicius who pulled winning said Oscars by making a black-and-white silent film do now, we’re glad to see that he’s doing a comedy.

There are no details on the story and the cast hasn’t been set, but Demetri Martin has written the script and the possibilities that we can all imagine with Hazanavicius and Martin are pretty great.

Alejandro González Iñárritu pulled off awards powerhouse dark comedy Birdman last year and perhaps this is the start of fantastic foreign directors doing comedy in the U.S.
