Not only has he announced his engagement to his superstar girlfriend, ‘Friends’ star Jennifer Aniston, he’s also signed on to re-write and direct a brand new comedy!
According to Deadline, Theroux will take the helm for the upcoming Warner Bros film ‘Swear To God,’ a comedy starring Will Ferrell and Steve Carell. Ferrell is set to feature as a self-obsessed hedge fund manager who thinks that he’s seen God, but as yet there’s no word on what Carell’s role will be.
Theroux will be re-writing a script by ‘Due Date’ scribes Alan Cohen and Alan Freedland - and he certainly has the comedic chops for it! Justin’s already written scripts for other hilarious films including ‘Tropic Thunder,’ ‘Rock Of Ages’ and the upcoming ‘Zoolander 2’, as well acting in shows ‘Sex and the City’ and ‘Parks and Recreation.’
Production on the film begins next July after both Farrell and Carell have finished shooting ‘Anchorman 2.’
