So, what do Julia Louis-Dreyfus and James Gandolfini have in common? Well, they're both graduates of the Armando Iannucci school of comedy with the former currently starring in his HBO series "Veep" and the latter featuring in "In The Loop." Now both will take those comic skills -- and the considerable talents they already have -- and bring them to new project that already sounds quite promising.

So, what do Julia Louis-Dreyfus and James Gandolfini have in common? Well, they're both graduates of the Armando Iannucci school of comedy with the former currently starring in his HBO series "Veep" and the latter featuring in "In The Loop." Now both will take those comic skills -- and the considerable talents they already have -- and bring them to new project that already sounds quite promising.

Nicole Holofcener is gearing up a new film that will star Louis-Dreyfus and Gandolfini with the project already finding a home at Fox Searchlight. There is no title yet, but the story will center on a masseuse (JLD) who falls in love with the husband (JG) of a new friend. Sounds like another film that will balance comedy and drama in equally measure, and after her excellent and somewhat underrated "Please Give," we can't wait to see what she does next.

While it's been a couple of years since that film, she hasn't been sitting idle. Holofcener has done some TV directing work on "Enlightened" and "Parks & Recreation" and has a couple of scripts being developed including "Unforgiving World," a remake of the 2008 French film "Notre univers impitoyable" for Nanette Burnstein to direct and the crime pic "Every Secret Thing" that has Frances McDormand attached to produce. But we're glad she's getting back behind the camera for another movie and hopefully there will be more news to come soon.
