Ben Stiller / Mark Romanek

Previously we'd heard about a potential collaboration between director Mark Romanek (Never Let Me Go) and Ben Stiller for the Black Listed dark comedy The Voices. However, Worst Previews reports another project might bring them together. Romanek talked with Worst Previews about some of his future projects and mentioned a father/daughter comedy called A Parking Ticket (formerly titled In Deep) from writer Steve Conrad (The Pursuit of Happyness). The black comedy would follow a dad fighting an unjust parking ticket in order to teach his daughter about the legal system, but his battle ends up getting him on death row.

Romanek said: "It's a very funny movie. It's a black comedy, but it's quite funny. We're working on the script still, fiddling with it a little bit. I just spoke with Ben the night before last." However, the director said the film likely won't be his next project as he's busy pursuing an unknown project that he's been working on for fifteen years. Apparently he just got a screenwriter and two actors lined up for the project, but didn't reveal what it might be. With two projects in the works with Stiller, it sounds like Romanek really wants to work with him. After Stiller's great performance in Greenberg, I'm definitely up for more dark comedies featuring his talents. How about you?
