Jack Black is reteaming with Kung Fu Panda writers Jonathan Aibel and Glenn Berger for an untitled live-action action comedy set up at Universal, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The film could be described as sort of a comedic Bourne Identity and centers on an American who finds himself washed up the shores of Cuba with no idea of who he is and how he got there. He comes to the conclusion that he must be a superspy, though in reality he is far from one.
"On the other hand," Berger said, "if he did turn out to be a superspy, this wouldn't be a 'comedic Bourne Identity,' but just 'The Bourne Identity,' and apparently Universal has already made that movie, several times."
Universal picked up the project as a pitch in a seven-figure deal.
No production date has been set.
