Kevin James Is Ruler of the "Nation"

"The King of Queens" star is engaged in negotiations to star in Universal Pictures' new comedy "One Nation Under Bob."


Set to show full dedication to film industry following the wrapping up of his sitcom "The King of Queens", Kevin James has entered talks to highlight "One Nation Under Bob", a new comedy of Universal Pictures production.

Written by John Scott Shepherd, the project revolves around an average guy who inherits a plot of land only to discover that it is a country unto itself and he is now the owner of a sovereign nation. No word on the director yet, but it is learned that Tom Shadyac will produce via his Shady Acres with Michael Bostick.

James, who landed an Emmy Award nomination last year through "Queens", made his first outing as a male lead in the upcoming "I Now Pronounce You Chuck and Larry." Apart from "Nation", his future film stints include those in "Monster Hunter" and "Field Trip", which both also are comedies.
