According to Variety, Arrested Development star Will Arnett will topline New Line's comedy Jeff the Demon with "Da Ali G Show" writer-director James Bobin helming.

Jeff the Demon centers on a pair of high school losers who find a book that allows them to summon a power from the netherworld. The demon, Jeff, helps them win every battle and right every wrong in their lives, but they quickly find that further problems ensue.

Jeff the Demon marks the second recent New Line comedy deal for Arnett, who's signed to star in We're the Millers.

Arnett's completed work in Sony's RV alongside Robin Williams and Carsey-Werner's You Are Going to Prison. He's attached to Dad Can't Lose and Get 'Em Wet for Paramount and Most Likely to Succeed for Universal.
