Edward Norton is set to play dual roles in Leaves of Grass, according to Variety. The comedic thriller to be directed in spring by Tim Blake Nelson, who wrote the script, will also act in the film.

Norton will play identical twins, one an Ivy League classics professor and the other a hedonistic pot-smoking career criminal. He'll make the film after completing the Universal drama State of Play.

Norton and Nelson recently starred together in The Incredible Hulk. Nelson wrote Leaves of Grass specifically for Norton, and they've been waiting for the right opportunity to do it.
