Chris Rock

After 2003's Head of State and 2007's I Think I Love My Wife, Chris Rock is planning to see how the director's chair fits again him, with a new comedy film project he's going to write and direct, starting sometime later this year.

The film will be produced by Scott Rudin, the hyperactive and prolific film and Broadway producer who was one of the producers of the Broadway play The Motherf____r  With the Hat, which Rock made his Broadway acting debut in.

However the premise of the film, Rock is keeping top secret for now, except to say that unlike I Think I Love My Wife, which was a remake ofthe 1972 French film Chloe in the Afternoon, this new film will be based on an original idea.

Rock said:"We didn't buy the rights to anything. I'm going to get into it and get dirty."
