The Artist Director to Helm Zach Galifianakis Movie

Good news for fans of long last names: Variety reports Michel Hazanavicius has signed on to direct Zach Galifianakis in Will. Written by Demetri Martin, the film tells the story of a world where Earth lives are written by people in Heaven. Galifianakis will play a writer who kind of blows it for his human, Will. Paul Rudd has been in talks to play Will since the film first started development back in 2010. Maybe negotiations would move more quickly if he changed his name to Paul Ruddifarrowitzerinonanbergstein.
