Black & White to Produce "Shaun" Director's Next Flick

by | September 20, 2005 | Comments

Edgar Wright, director of the universally popular "Shaun of the Dead," will soon get behind the cameras for "Them," says Variety. The dark comedy will be written by Mike White and produced by Mr. White and Mr. Black. (Jack Black, that is.)

Based on the book by Jon Ronson, the story, "an exploration of extremists, is described as a conspiracy comedy about one woman’s journey to unmask the secret rulers of the world. White and Wright are using elements of it to hatch the story White will write.

White, who last scripted "The School of Rock," is working on "Nacho Libre," a comedy that stars his partner, Black, as a priest who moonlights as a wrestler to save an orphanage. Jared Hess ("Napoleon Dynamite") is directing. White wrote the script with Hess and his wife, Jerusha Hess.

After making his breakthrough on the comical zombie pic "Shaun of the Dead," Wright has been producing and directing "Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Life" for Universal."
