Justin Theroux's career as a triple threat actor, director, and writer continues. Coming off another strong comedic turn in this year's hippie colony comedy "Wanderlust," Theroux is set to follow-up his underrated feature-film debut, "Dedication" with a new comedy called, "Swear To God."

Even better, his A-list cast will include Will Ferrell and Steve Carell, who will reunite sometime later this year (or early next year) for "Anchorman 2." A Warner Bros./Gary Sanchez comedy that's been sitting in the development queue since last summer with Ferell at the center, the comedy will focus on a narcissistic hedge fund manager who thinks he has seen God. Previously written by "Due Date" scribes Alan R. Cohen and Alan Freedland, Theroux, who's also forged a strong career as a screenwriter ("Iron Man 2," "Tropic Thunder"), will rewrite the script.

Theroux is also supposed to write and direct "Zoolander 2" starring Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson and Jonah Hill, but there's been little movement on that project for months. Production on 'God' will happen next summer after "Anchorman 2," so that probably means the script to the "Zoolander" sequel hasn't passed the muster with Paramount quite yet.  "Anchorman 2" helmer and Gary Sanchez founder Adam McKay, who was once planning to direct, will produce instead.
