Details of Larry David's HBO film have finally been unveiled. The project is titled "Clear History" and will have Jon Hamm, Kate Hudson and Eva Mendes starring opposite David himself. Bill Hader, Danny McBride, Phillip Baker Hall, Michael Keaton, Amy Ryan and David's "Curb Your Enthusiasm" co-star J.B. Smoove are among other actors supporting the comedy.
The film centers on Nathan Flomm (David) a former marketing executive at a start-up electric car company who lost a fortune due to a petty argument with his boss (Hamm). After that, he is publicly humiliated for walking away from his 10% of a company now worth billions.
Ten years later, Nathan has changed his identity and uses Rolly DaVore as his name. He lives a simple life on a small island off the coast of Massachusetts. But when his former boss shows up to renovate his summer mansion, Nathan vows to seek revenge and drive his nemesis off the island.
Hudson will play Rhonda, the glamorous wife of Hamm's character. Hader will portray the friend and henchman of a local quarry owner (Hall) who agrees to help Rolly settle an old debt. Keaton will play Joe Stumpo, the erratic and eccentric operator of the island's quarry. McBride will play Frank, a local denizen who is also Rolly's best friend.
Mendes is cast as Jennifer, a local resident who causes Rolly no end of trouble for taking his off-handed suggestion a bit too seriously. Ryan will portray Rolly's ex-girlfriend Wendy, and JB Smoove will star as Jaspar, the ex-boyfriend of a local girl who blames Rolly for the demise of his relationship.
In addition to taking the lead role, the "Seinfeld" co-creator writes the script. Greg Mottola is on board to serve as a director and executive producer for the TV movie, which is scheduled to start shooting in Massachusetts in the fall. Bradley Thomas, Alec Berg, David Mandel and Jeff Schaffer will also executive produce it.
