Peter Serafinowicz

Though you might not know Peter Serafinowicz by name, you've certainly seen his work. The British comedian has appeared in films like Shaun of the Dead as Shaun and Ed's annoyed roommate Pete, not to mention Edgar Wright's earlier work with the TV series "Spaced." In addition, Serafinowicz provided the dubbed voice for Darth Maul in Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace, though he was played on screen by stuntman Ray Park. Now Twitch reports the actor is poised to get behind the camera with a new dark comedy called I See What You Did There, which is described as The King of Comedy meets Misery.

That sounds like a weird combination, but since the story follows a comedian who kills a heckler with the only witness being the funny man's number one fan, that's an apt description. Right now Serafinowicz is finalizing the script with his co-writer Danny Wallace (Awkward Situations for Men, Yes Man), and they're hoping to shoot sometime in 2014. Serafinowicz has very unique comedic tastes, and he's also an interesting visual director having been behind the camera for music videos like this unofficial, but approved alternate version of Get Lucky by Daft Punk (in which he also appears). His directorial debut is definitely on our radar, and we hope to hear more soon.

    So Ray Park wasn't actually delivering those lines? I'm flabbergasted.
