Zach Galifianakis, whose profile has undoubtedly grown thanks to a great and hilarious part in last year's THE HANGOVER, will now try his hot hand at... "supernatural comedy"?

According to ShockTillYouDrop while at a screening event for THE CRAZIES, producer Michael Aguiler said that Galifianakis is attached to a script for a film called MIRACLE WORKERS.

The story "is a buddy supernatural comedy in which the actor is put on a path that has him posing as an exorcist with a pal. The two think they've got a good thing going until they're faced with a real menace."

No director is currently attached, though one is expected to jump aboard soon. Galifianakis has a bunch of stuff in the works, including DINNER FOR SCHMUCKS, DUE DATE, IT'S KIND OF A FUNNY STORY, and PUSS IN BOOTS (as the voice of Humpty Dumpty). He'll next be seen in ROGUES GALLERY due out later this year.
Extra Tidbit: In 2008, Galifianakis toured with Will Ferrell's Funny or Die college tour.

I loved him in Out Cold, which is my favorite toss in movie when I get whiskey drunk. I'll watch that dude in anything, even Below(expected a lot more from Twohy in that one)

I agree that his stand up is great. And I've only seen him in Hangover, where his performance mirrored his stand up. I have hope that he can get away from that and be a good comedic actor. I kinda want him for the new Ghostbusters.

I like him doing stand up. I don't like him so much in films because he comes off like the Molester Nester uncle-type. Great for stand-up, horrible for film.

Oh, and typos happen to everyone. It's best not to nit-pick lest thee be nit-picked later in the future. :)

He came off that way because he was supposed to be a weirdo in the Hangover, and he pulled it off perfectly.

That's the overt performance. He comes of the same way in G-FORCE, WHAT HAPPENS IN VEGAS, BELOW, CORKY ROMANO and even HEARTBREAKERS. There's something funny-creepy about him, but for me it just doesn't work all that well in film roles and he'll end up playing the same thing over and over, which is fine for stand-up because you need a reputation to sell. I just see him as two-dimensional on film.
