All follicle-related business aside, the trailer had me chuckling throughout, and was reinvigorated by the filmís cast, which stretches out longer than eight Howards. The tone is perfectly low-key, even with seemingly big plot stakes. Greg Mattolaís direction mixes cinematic and single-camera TV aesthetics appropriately. The script from David, Alec Berg, David Mandel and Jeff Schaffer was only a bunch of set directions, as the film is entirely improvisational, but they still manage to make Larry David look like a schmo.
Earlier today, HBO announced that its comedy series, Eastbound & Down, would end after Season 4. While thatís bad news for fans of the series, the network also announced some good news today. Not only has Boardwalk Empire finally gotten a Season 4 premiere date, but Larry Davidís original movie, Clear History, and Stephen Merchantís new comedy, Hello Ladies, are also headed to the schedule very soon.
The film, which was almost entirely improvised as per Davidís style, follows David as a former electric car company owner who plots revenge against the former boss who made millions from his old company. I want to see him lose his top, so to speak.
The last time we heard from Larry Davidís new comedy movie, the project was potentially moving from the big screen to subscription cable channel, HBO. All of the details hadnít been finalized, but, recently, they started shoring up fast. Davidís new HBO movie is going to be called Clear History and a slew of cast members, including John Hamm, Bill Hader, Danny McBride, Kate Hudson, Michael Keaton and many more have been added to the lineup.
