Recently ditching rumors of his involvement in Zack Snyder's "Watchmen", Jonah Hill apparently has another plan in mind to continue working on his career.

The "Knocked Up" star has revealed to MTV that he is reuniting with the flick's producer/co-writer/director Judd Apatow to produce together a new comedic feature entitled "Pure Imagination" which he is also set to star in and pen the screenplay.

"Basically, I go through a bunch of traumatic stuff, and I develop an imaginary friend," the funnyman gave out the basic premise. "Then what happens is I meet a girl, and we start datingÖbut the problem is I don't know whether she [actually] exists [or] whether she's a figment of my imagination."

"Itís basically a relationship movie, but the whole time Iím trying to avoid finding out whether sheís real or not," he further explained. "I donít want to know, basically. And then, my best friend who I go to for advice, is an imaginary person that Iíve made up in my mind."

Giving indications that production on the project is expected to start sometime next year, Hill then added that he envisions his script as the kind of thing that could take Apatowís blueprint in the direction of some of Hollywoodís edgiest directors.

"Itís trying to do what we do with ĎKnocked Up,í ĎSuperbadí and Ď[The 40 Year-Old] Virginí, and mix it a little bit with stuff that Spike Jonze and Michel Gondry do," so he remarked. "Itís kind of like a little bit artisier. Iím so psyched about it; Iím the producer, and Juddís the producer, and itís cool."
