Larry Charles (Curb Your Enthusiasm, Seinfeld, Borat) has been hired to write a remake of The Man Who Sued God, the 2001 Australian film that was a tidy hit in its home country when released almost fifteen years ago.
And while the decision hasn’t been made yet, Charles could end up directing as well, making it his follow-up to the Sacha Baron Cohen comedy The Dictator. (He’s also done some television in the interim.) The original film starred Billy Connolly and Judy Davis in a story about a man whose fishing boat is destroyed by lightning. Angry at his insurance company’s refusal to cover his claim, which the company labels an “act of God,” the man files suit against the Creator himself.
