While not teasing us with a possible Dave Chappelle collaboration, Chris Rock has been working on his third feature film. Deadline reports that Rock will write, direct, and star in the currently untitled comedic send-up of the entertainment industry, and Scott Rudin and Barry Diller will produce. A leaked casting call has suggested the film centers on a comedian who wants to be seen as a serious actor. As they say, write what you know.
