The Hollywood Reporter has revealed that brothers Owen and Luke Wilson are set to re-team on a new comedy project with Borat director Larry Charles.
The untitled comedy is set up at Voltage Pictures, who are in the process of looking for buyers at Cannes, and will see the siblings team with Martin Lawrence.
Luke Wilson will star as “Howie Summers, a man falsely accused of a bank robbery who, thanks to his criminally incompetent lawyer (Owen Wilson), finds himself serving a life sentence in prison. On the advice of his cellmate Slick (Lawrence), he finds a wife on the outside and marries the seemingly sweet, demure woman. When, shortly afterwards, Howie is exonerated, he suddenly finds himself married to a woman he barely knows.”
Director Charles, who worked with Sacha Baron Cohen on Borat, Bruno and The Dictator, was also executive producer and director on hit HBO comedy show Curb Your Enthusiasm.
