DreamWorks, one of the partner film houses that teamed up to put out Dinner For Schmucks have made it official that they are in the business of Zach Galifianakis.
The film house made a preemptive purchase of the movie Reply All, which is set to be written as a star vehicle for the bearded one who also happens to be its producer. Screenwriter Phil Johnston will write the comedy and be its executive producer. The movie idea sans script was put on the table and Dreamworks snatched that sucker up.
Galifianakis will be the film’s lead as a guy who accidentally his “reply all” to an email then deals with the fallout from his actions. Something we’ve all done at some point in our life but never really thought there was 90+ minutes of movie in there.
In the meantime, Galifianakis has Schmucks, and the upcoming Due Date, so regardless of when we get Reply All, we still have plenty of Galifianakis in the pipeline.
