Zach Galifianakis has set up the comedy Reply All at DreamWorks, with plans to produce and star. Phil Johnston (Cedar Rapids) will pen the script, and join Galifianakis as executive producer. According to Deadline, the plot centers on “a guy who hits the ‘reply all’ button to an indiscreet e-mail, and then has to deal with the repercussions.” (We’ve all been there, right? Eh?)
Galifianakis will next be seen in this Friday’s Dinner for Shmucks, followed by Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck’s It’s Kind of a Funny Story on September 24th, then opposite Robert Downey Jr. for the road trip comedy Due Date starting November 5th. The sequel to The Hangover — the hit film that enabled such a busy schedule for Galifianakis — is reportedly set to shoot this November in Thailand.
