Jorma Taccone to Direct the Film Adaptation of the Graphic Novel The Great Unknown

SNL/The Lonely Island's Jorma Taccone has been tapped to direct The Great Unknown, an adaptation of the graphic novel by Duncan Rouleau. It'll be his second time directing a movie, after the underperforming MacGruber. Here's what to expect in terms of the plot:

The comic centers on a slacker with delusions of grandeur who believes his so-called great ideas are popping up elsewhere. After failing to convince his friends and family that his mind is being pilfered, he goes on a quest to solve the mystery behind the idea thefts.

The movie will be an action comedy, while the comic is billed as a "lowfi-scifi," which sounds pretty fun. Anybody read it? Thoughts on who could pull off the lead role?

    I liked that comic a lot, although it was never completed (I believe 3 of 5 issues came out).

    I think you, Adam Frucci, look like the lead character:
