Stoller will write and direct the film about a fresh-out-of-college insurance adjuster (Hill) who is hired to accompany an out-of-control rock star (Brand) from London to a gig at L.A.’s Greek Theater, says Variety.
“During the table read on Sarah Marshall, Jonah and Russell had such a great chemistry,” Stoller told Variety. He described Greek as a very dirty take on Almost Famous. “Even though they are such different actors with different styles, I thought there could be a great buddy comedy there.”
Hill’s upcoming credits include the comedy This Side of the Truth, directed by and starring Ricky Gervais alongside Jennifer Garner. He will also lend his voice to the animated How to Train Your Dragon.
