Larry David Is Making a Movie Filled with Make 'Em Ups

Larry David has come up with an idea for a picture and he has brought on Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer and David Mandel to help him write it. All three were former Seinfeld writers and together wrote The Dictator with Sacha Baron Cohen. Like The Dictator and Curb Your Enthusiasm, David's film will be in a similar semi-improvised style. Superbad and Paul (and soon to be, weirdly enough, The Marriage Plot) director, Greg Mottola, is being eyed to direct. There is no word on what the film is about but I imagine it will involve an overly principled curmudgeon complaining about restaurant service.
