Jack Black is reuniting with Kung Fu Panda writers Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger for a sort of comedic Bourne Identity, says The Hollywood Reporter. The live-action project sees Black as an American who, after washing up the shores of Cuba with no idea of who he is, decides he must be a superspy – which, of course, he is not.

"For our next live-action project, we knew we wanted to work with either a panda or Jack. Luckily, Endeavor repped Jack," Aibel told The Reporter. "We also figured that if we could write for Jack as a panda, we could write for him as a human."

The writers, also repped by Endeavor, were writer-producers on King of the Hill and are working on Monsters vs. Aliens, which features the voices of Seth Rogen and Reese Witherspoon.

Black will next be seen in Harold RamisYear One.
