Comedian Katt Williams is set to star in the workplace comedy Mission: Intolerable, the first film slated for production from the Weinstein Co. , according to The Hollywood Reporter. John Whitesell (Deck the Halls) is in talks to direct.
Williams will play a wannabe CIA agent who starts a business as a "temp from hell" whom companies hire to get unwanted employees to quit their jobs. His latest assignment goes awry, however, when his new target fights back.
The film is based on an original screenplay by Steven List and Astrid Neal, rewritten by Fax Bahr and Adam Small with additional contributions from Williams.
Production is expected to begin before the end of first-quarter 2008.
