Way back in 2010 we wrote about "Will," a clever script by Demetri Martin that was then looking like the follow-up to "Little Miss Sunshine" for directors Valerie Faris and Jonathan Dayton. Back then it starred Paul Rudd and Zach Galifianakis as characters living in a world devoid of free-will, with every moment of your life is preordained by "angelic scribes." Of course things change when Will (who would've been played by Rudd), turns 34 and finds out that his life has opened up and that he's actually free to do whatever he wants. Adam McKay and Will Ferrell were set to produce through their Gary Sanchez shingle and then… nothing. Dayton and Faris ended up making this year's terrific "Ruby Sparks" and "Will" was never heard from again.
