It's been four years since Bob Odenkirk has directed a feature film, but apparently he is preparing to step behind the camera again for the indie comedy "Annie Jenkins: A Not Very Romantic Comedy," according to Hollywood website The Wrap .
While Bob didn't go into much detail about the project, he did reveal that he has an impressive cast lined up, including Krysten Ritter, Rainn Wilson, Dennis Farina and longtime collaborator David Cross.
Odenkirk says that none of the actors have formally signed on yet and are not officially attached at this point, but they've all read his "Annie Jenkins" script and agreed to play parts in the film, which is still searching for its male lead.
Odenkirk and producer Mary Jane Skalski ("The Visitor") are currently in the midst of finding financing for the project, which they expect to put into production later this year.
The article also mentions that Bob is still holding out hope for his long-rumored adaptation of Arthur Nersesian's cult novel "The F**k-Up," which has had Jesse Eisenberg, Juliette Lewis and Michael Shannon attached to star at various points during development. Originally announced in 2004, the project has been a labor of love for Odenkirk, and while he wasn't able to pull the financing together before his option on the book expired, the novel's new rights holders could still use his well-received screenplay.
Bob also recently contributed a segment to the comedy anthology film "Movie 43" , from producers Peter Farrelly and Charles B. Wessler.
