As part of our continuing 24-hour coverage of what Superbad director Greg Mottola is doing, Greg Mottola has followed yesterday's revelation that he's considering adapting Jeffrey Eugenides' The Marriage Plot with today's announcement that he's mounting an altogether different study of neurosis. Mottola is negotiating to direct an "improv-based" film starring Larry David, which the comedian who recently played a nun in The Three Stooges is quickly developing as recompense for that with his Seinfeld and Curb Your Enthusiasm collaborators Alec Berg, Jeff Schaffer, and David Mandel—all of whom are working on this instead of making another season of Curb like maybe they should be doing, because we say so. Anyway, neither title nor plot details are available, but the premise is a Larry David original, so most likely it will involve a guy whose uncompromising personality and focus on trivial social behaviors causes comical conflict. This is just a guess.
