More information is emerging on Larry David’s upcoming feature film, and it appears the Curb Your Enthusiasm funnyman is assembling an impressive roster of big-name talent for his HBO-produced big-screen feature film, which is titled Clear History.
According to Deadline.com, the star-studded cast will include Jon Hamm, Michael Keaton, Bill Hader, Kate Hudson, Philip Baker Hall, Danny McBride, Eva Mendes, Amy Ryan and David’s Curb roommate JB Smoove.
The plot of the film revolves around Nathan Flomm (David), an ex-marketing executive at an electric car manufacturer who got into a petty spat with his boss (Hamm) and walked away from his 10 per cent share in the company, which, 10 years later, would have been worth billions.
Deadline.com’s Nellie Andreeva sums up the plot: “His marriage over and reputation ruined, Nathan has changed his identity and lives a simple life on a small island off the coast of Massachusetts under the new name of Rolly DaVore. But when his former boss shows up to renovate his summer mansion, Nathan vows to seek revenge and drive his nemesis off the island.
“Hader will play Rags, the friend and henchman of a local quarry owner who agrees to help Rolly settle an old debt. Hamm will play Will Haney, founder of the electric car company who has a contentious relationship with Flomm, his head of marketing. Hall will play McKenzie, the foreman of a local construction project who is duped into hiring Rolly and soon begins to regret it. Hudson will play Rhonda, the glamorous wife of Flomm’s arch-rival, with whom Rolly strikes up a special friendship. Keaton will play Joe Stumpo, the erratic and eccentric operator of the island’s quarry. McBride will play Frank, a local denizen and best friend to Rolly. Mendes will play Jennifer, a local resident who takes an off-handed suggestion from Rolly a bit too seriously, causing Rolly no end of trouble. Ryan will play Wendy, Rolly’s the ex-girlfriend whom Rolly discovers has been hiding an explicit secret since before they dated. JB Smoove will play Jaspar, the ex-boyfriend of a local girl who blames Rolly for the demise of his relationship.”
Shooting is scheduled to take place in Massachussetts later this fall.
