Galifianakis joins A Confederacy of Dunces, Wilson, Wilde and Larson go Nuts for Bogdanovich; Segal boards a Diesel powered Machine, and Bradley Cooper takes aim at American Sniper.
1. The Hangover star Zach Galifianakis may be the one to finally bring John Kennedy Toole’s Pulitzer Prize–winning novel, A Confederacy of Dunces to the screen.
The long-gestating adaptation has been on and off for over thirty years with the likes of John Belushi, John Candy Chris Farley and (most recently) Will Ferrell attached to the role of Ignatius J. Reilly.
The Muppets director James Bobin looks set to direct the film which will be scripted by Phil Johnston and produced by Scott Rudin.
It might be a little early to start cracking open the champagne, but the signs are looking Reilly good.
