Comedy director Will Gluck (Easy A, Friends With Benefits) is now set out to direct a remake of a Swinish drama. Now, after directing two big comedy hits, Will Gluck is taking on a more serious film. I for one am a fan of his work, and I’m excited to see this film. The drama is called How to Disappear Completely, and is going to be based off the film called Vitus, which was one of Switzerland’s entries for best Foreign film, but was not nominated.
There is no cast yet attached to the film, and no indication when to expect the film to hit theaters. The script is written by Ed Solomon, the writer behind the action/comedy Men in Black. From my prospective, when you have a writer and a director who are known for films in totally different genres to come together on a project in a genre that neither are known for, you could be in for a real treat. Which I think we are. Look at Jonah Hill for example — a well-known comedic actor who on his first role in a drama earned an Oscar nomination.
