Aziz Ansari And Danny McBride Have A Deal With Mandate Pictures
Rising comic star Ansari was most recently tapped to host the upcoming MTV Movie Awards and is about to embark on a summer stand-up tour across the U.S.
And now we have news that Mandate Pictures has picked up an untitled comedy feature pitch based on an idea by comedian Aziz Ansari and "30 Rock" television scribe Matt Hubbard. Ansari is attached to star in the project alongside comic actor Danny McBride.
Harris Wittels, who writes for Ansari's NBC tv series "Parks and Recreation," will pen the feature script.
The project, whose plotline is being kept under wraps, reunites McBride and Ansari, both of whom starred in Hill's "Observe and Report" last year. The duo are about to embark on another project together, Columbia Pictures' "30 Minutes or Less," currently in pre-production.
Rising comic star Ansari was most recently tapped to host the upcoming MTV Movie Awards and is about to embark on a summer stand-up tour across the U.S. The comedian, who is repped by UTA and 3 Arts Entertainment, will be seen on screen this summer in the comedy "Get Him to the Greek."
