Jorma Taccone, member of The Lonely Island and director of MACGRUBER, has signed on to direct the film adaptation of Image Comics' THE GREAT UNKNOWN.

The comic is described as an action-comedy that follows a slacker with delusions of grandeur who believes his so-called great ideas are popping up elsewhere. After failing to convince his friends and family that his mind is being pilfered, he goes on a quest to solve the mystery behind the idea thefts.

Sounds like a promising plot device.  The film will be written by newcomer Michael Starrbury.  The comic series was written by Duncan Rouleau, who is a part of Man of Action Studios, the creators of Ben 10 and the upcoming Ultimate Spider-man cartoon.

Taccone is responsible for having directed many of the memorable SNL Digital Shorts.  MACGRUBER is his only film directing credit to date but he also appeared as ChaKa in the Will Ferrel version of LAND OF THE LOST.

Extra Tidbit: Why do all of these comics get greenlit and I have yet to see my big screen PREACHER, Y: THE LAST MAN, EX MACHINA, or FABLES?

MacGruber caught me off guard and is an awesome snort fest all the way through. Ill check this out. I have to agree with Swiz though, a Preacher movie wont work. Series or nothing.

MacGruber is a masterpiece, I don't give a shit what anyone says. Pure, screwed up genius. I hated the skit on SNL, but the movie was awesome. I'm one of like 25 people that saw it and maybe the only one that liked it.

I love The Lonely Island. I'll watch anything these guys do. Hot Rod was also boss.

Please no Preacher movie! Can we honestly trust Hollywood to do it justice? HBO series or nada for me! Thank You, that will be all.
