Will – Rudd and Galifianakis to star in new comedy

It seems like Paul Rudd and Zach Galifianakis just can’t get enough of one another. Following their pairing in the yet-to-be-released comedy Dinner for Schmucks, the pair are set to reteam for Paramount’s upcoming Will.

Directed by Little Miss Sunshine team Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton, the movie follows an ordinary guy, played by Rudd, who lives in a world where people’s lives and destinies are being written by writers in Heaven. One day he awakes to discover that his writer (Galifianakis) has taken a sabbatical and now he must live his life unscripted.

Comedian Demetri Martin wrote the script, which sounds more than a little like a heavenly version of Will Ferrell comedy Stranger Than Fiction.
