HBO Announces ‘Girls’ Return and Larry David Film


We miss Curb Your Enthusiasm’s lovable neurotic Larry David, but HBO has officially announced that the network will be producing and airing his new movie — originally set to feature at Fox. There aren’t many details circulating about the comedian’s upcoming project, but “like Curb, will feature improv elements, will be directed by Greg Mottola, with David, Jon Hamm, and Michael Keaton attached to star,” Deadline reports. Mottola has been acting as co-executive producer and sometimes episode director for Aaron Sorkin’s The Newsroom, so he’ll be in familiar territory with the network. David’s last filmic roles were this year’s unnecessary Three Stooges and the 2009 Woody Allen feature Whatever Works.

If you’re bummed about the lack of Curb news, the announcement that Girls and Enlightened are returning in January should cheer you up. HBO will also be working on a Rolling Stones documentary from The Kid Stays In The Picture director Brett Morgen, tied to the band’s 50th anniversary. They also gave details on an Entourage film.
