Larry David isn't commited to do another season of "Curb Your Enthusiasm" yet. At the Television Critics Association summer press tour, the "Seinfeld" co-creator said he had not made a decision about the future of the HBO show, which wrapped up its eighth season in September 2011.
"I don't know. I really don't know. I couldn't say. Ask me in six months," he responded to a question whether there would be more "Curb". "I'm an indecisive fellow. You should see me at a restaurant," he went on reasoning. "It's a big decision, by the way, to do a season of this show...I am lazy! Lazy! Who wants to do that?"
While he won't return as a fictionalized version of himself on "Curb" in the near future, David will return to HBO next month when his film "Clear History" debuts August 10 at 9 P.M. In it, the comedian plays "a hipster marketing exec who sells all his shares at a start-up over a fight with his boss, only to miss out on billions when the company's new product-an electric car-becomes a smashing success."
Speaking about the TV movie at the TCA, David revealed he was inspired by a true story of "a guy who owned 10% of Apple and sold his shares before the company took off." He said, "I thought that was funny, or, as my mother used to say, I happened to think that was funny."
Director Greg Mottola gushed over the story, "It was a really clever and interesting story, with a kind of throwback classic comedy farcical structure." He went on praising David, who co-wrote the comedy movie with Alec Berg, David Mandel and Jeff Schaffer, "One of the things I love about Larry is that even though the film is completely improvised, it's also incredibly disciplined. His stories have great structure, great twists and turns, and surprises and payoffs."
"Clear History" boasts a star-studded cast ensemble, with Jon Hamm playing David's on-screen boss. Bill Hader, Danny McBride, Kate Hudson, Michael Keaton, Eva Mendes and more support the movie.
