Though she only first appeared as a supporting cast member on Saturday Night Live last year, Iranian American comedian Nasim Pedrad has already set up her first feature film, working with producers Will Speck and Josh Gordon, the directors behind the upcoming comedy The Switch. This news comes from The Los Angeles Times, who also mention that Speck and Gordon are collaborating on the Untitled Lucas/Moore Christmas Party Comedy with The Hangover writers Jon Lucas and Scott Moore.
Nasim Pedrad will write and star in the Untitled Nasim Pedrad Culture Clash Comedy. The film is being described as a Down and Out in Beverly Hills-style look at the differences between an All-American family and their Persian neighbors next door. The comedy will have a distinctly Southern California feel to it.
No other cast members are signed to star alongside Pedrad just yet, but you can expect at least one of her Saturday Night Live co-stars to make an appearance. There is also no word on whether Speck and Gordon will direct the film, or if they will only be producing.
