Aziz Ansari Movie Coming Soon
Aziz Ansari, most notably recognized from sketch comedy show “Human Giant” and, more recently, NBC’s “Parks & Recreation”, has successfully sold an untitled comedy pitch conceived by himself and “30 Rock” writer Matt Hubbard to Mandate Pictures.
The Hollywood Reporter confirms Mandate’s announcement of the project, details of which are being kept strictly secret. Anzari will star in the picture opposite Danny McBride of “Pineapple Express” and “Eastbound & Down” fame. McBride will likewise serve as co-producer under his Rough House banner alongside his partners Jody Hill, Matt Reilly, and David Gordon Green.
This will be the second co-venture between Mandate Pictures and Rough House since a first look deal was penned last year. Anzari will co-produce with Mandate’s Nathan Kahane, and “Parks & Recreation” writer Harris Wittels will pen the script.
