Curb Your Enthusiasm
Directed by : Greg Mottola (Undeclared, Arrested Development, The Comeback and The Newsroom).
Story by : Larry David, Alec Berg, David Mandel & Jeff Schaffer (Seinfeld and Curb your Enthusiasm).
Starring : Larry David, Jon Hamm (Mad Men, 30 Rock) and Michael Keaton (30 Rock).
This film will première in 2013 on HBO. Filming of this improvisational comedy starts this autumn.
Synopsis : The film will center on Lenny (Larry David), a marketing executive helping to market a new electric car but who objects to the vehicle's moniker, named after Howard Roark. When Lenny butts heads with the creator, a workmate named Haney (Jon Hamm), he storms off the project and leaves his financial stake in the car to his nemesis.
But once the deal is struck, the car goes on to huge success and profit, making Haney insanely wealthy and leaving Lenny to lose his wife, house and hair. Then, after Lenny moves to Martha's Vineyard under the name Rolly, picking up work as an elderly woman's assistant, his life is shaken up once more when Haney, unable to recognize his former co-worker, re-enters his life, and prompts Lenny to hatch a revenge plan for the ages.

Still no news on whether there will be a ninth season of Curb your Enthusiasm, fingers crossed. Since season 4 ended in March 2004, there have been 18-22 months between each season, but this time it appears the gap between season 8 (and hopefully) season 9 will be longer - season 8 having aired last summer, it seems impossible to have a new batch of comedy gold ready for July 2013 with no announcement made so far and Larry busy with this film for the next 3-4 months.
But this improv comedy starring LD in a clearly Curbian role/story is quite reminiscent of the amazing HBO series, and it kind of makes up for the lack of a new season next year. Or does it not ? Sound off on this film in the comments !
