Where there’s a Will, there’s a way.

Four years ago, I passed along a bit of news about a pitch for a TV show called Will, which was going to centre on “an ordinary guy who lives in a world where people’s lives and destinies are being written by scribes in Heaven. The man wakes up one day to find that his heavenly writer has decided to no longer draft his life, and he must go about his day unscripted.”

Today, Variety and the Hollywood Reporter announced that the project, which was originally pitched by Demetri Martin, is going ahead — but as a big-screen movie, rather than a TV show. The film will star Paul Rudd and Zach Galifianakis, and the directors attached to the movie are Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton, who last worked on the indie hit Little Miss Sunshine (2006) and have since toyed with several other projects, including The Abstinence Teacher, but have not yet made an actual follow-up.

As something of a Paul Rudd fan, and as one who loves discussions about the nature of free will etc., I am definitely keen to see this.
