Bob Odenkirk Is Working on a Book and a Claymation Movie with David Cross and an IFC Show with the Birthday Boys
Bob Odenkirk delivered an hour-long chat and Q&A session in his hometown Chicago last week, the Sun Times reports, and dropped some comedy bombshells. During his talk, Odenkirk revealed that he and Mr. Show collaborator David Cross are publishing some unproduced scripts they’ve written and that one of the scripts might actually be made into a Claymation movie. On top of that, he mentioned he’s been developing a sketch show with delightful L.A.-based comedy group The Birthday Boys for IFC, which is something to look forward to should it make it to series. When asked if the rumors of a Breaking Bad spin-off based around his character Saul Goodman were true, Odenkirk said, “Yeah, yeah, absolutely. But don’t put it on the Internet. I certainly don’t count on it; it’s showbiz.” I wish I could adhere to Odenkirk’s request, but some things are just too amazing to not be put on the Internet.
