Arrested Development creator Mitchell Hurwitz and Imagine Entertainment are teaming up to remake The Boss of It All for Universal, based on Lars von Trier's Norwegian comedy Direktoren For Det Hele, reports The Wrap.

Mitchell Hurwitz will direct the movie, which focuses on the owner of a small IT company who pretends there's another boss above him in order to more easily break bad news to his employees.

When he sells the company and the new owner wants to meet said boss, he has to hire a failed actor to play him ... with wacky results.

Emma Forrest is attached to write the screenplay.
