Fred Armisen Will Find 'Justice For Al' In Next Film From 'Bad Santa' & 'Ghost World' Director Terry Zwigoff

It has been seven long years since Terry Zwigoff's last film, "Art School Confidential," and as he told us in our candid interview with him last year, it "nearly ended my career for good. It was very hard to get another film going after that. Still trying." Well, it looks like the wheels are finally in motion for Zwigoff to get back behind the camera.

It has been seven long years since Terry Zwigoff's last film, "Art School Confidential," and as he told us  in our candid interview with him last year, it "nearly ended my career for good. It was very hard to get another film going after that. Still trying." Well, it looks like the wheels are finally in motion for Zwigoff to get back behind the camera.

The Wrap reveals that "Portlandia" star and "Saturday Night Live" veteran Fred Armisen will star in Zwigoff's "Justice For Al," a project he co-wrote with Melissa Axelrod, who worked on both "Bad Santa" and "Ghost World." The story will center around a man who is framed for a crime, convicted, and sentenced to house arrest, living with his parents in his childhood home, and how, with the help of his friends, he seeks revenge on the person who set him up. It sounds a bit familiar and almost ordinary, but we'd guess the combined power of both Zwigoff and Armisen will make it something unique, because the helmer has little interest in going mainstream. 

"Go to Target some day and look at who your target audience is. Look at the people who are out there going to films and you realize you are totally fucked, you don't want to do anything these people like," Zwigoff told us last year.

Either way, we're looking forward to it. Should it all come together, lensing will begin this fall.
