Larry David’s HBO Movie Is Very Larry Davidian
Last week, HBO confirmed they’re going to air the rumored Larry David movie but we still didn’t know anything about it. Well, the LA Times got a copy of the script/outline. They’re reporting the movie focuses on a prickly man (David, obvs) who gives up his stake in an electric car company, only to have the company become a huge success. The plot follows him trying to exact revenge on the inventor. For those familiar with David’s film work, this should sound slightly familiar. Both 1998’s Sour Grapes, which he wrote and directed, and 2004’s Envy, which he did the original pitch for and executive produced, are about men who are angry about missing an opportunity to be rich. Also, both movies aren’t very good, so maybe David is just trying to finally get it right. However, the movie is going to be completely improvised, so things can change. Maybe it will end up being about goose farmers in Martha’s Vineyard who open a bed and breakfast together.
