Desperate measures, right?
Eric Bana is gonna tell some lies for writer-director Ricky Gervais in Special Correspondents.
Yes, Gervais (The Invention of Lying) is getting ready to direct again, and this time he will be Americanizing a French comedy, centering the story on a New York-based radio journalist (Bana) who is all down on his luck, on account of his own excess, and who completely makes up war reports from his apartment in order to save his job.
Gervais is also set to co-star in the movie. I will guess that he will be playing Bana’s editor or producer or something. Some sort of partner in crime.
