"Borat" producer Dan Mazer will both write and direct an untitled original comedy feature under Universal Pictures banner.
Sealing a deal with Universal Pictures, "Borat" producer Dan Mazer is ready to bring laughs on the big screen once more as the guy has agreed to write an original comedy for the studio, Variety has reported.
Still not yet titled, the project will also see Mazer make his directorial debut with Judd Apatow seating as producer. When Mazer first developed an idea for the comedy, he brought it to Apatow who then took it to Universal which previously distributed his hit flick "The 40 Year-Old Virgin."
No production date set yet for the picture, but it is said that Mazer will begin penning the script right after he completes a rewrite on "New Years Steve", another comedy flick of the 20th Century Fox and Hyde Park Entertainment production.
