At last we have an idea about what Larry David's mysterious new film for HBO is about -- and not surprisingly, it sounds a lot like 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.'

Larry David's upcoming mystery movie has left the confines of Fox Searchlight and found a new home at a familiar location: HBO, the home to David's Emmy-winning series 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.' But what exactly is this movie?
Though he's played Batman and Beetlejuice, it feels like Michael Keaton's in some form of semi-retirement. Throughout the 80's and 90's he would show up in movie and usually be great in them, even if the material wasn't up to snuff, but for much of the last ten years he's been scarce. Recently, he had a great supporting performance in 'Toy Story 3' and then a juicy role in 'The Other Guys.' Now he's going to be in Larry David's upcoming movie.
What could possibly be better than ‘Superbad’ and ‘Adventureland’ director Greg Motolla casting ‘Curb Your Enthusiasm’ curmudgeon Larry David in a partially-improvised comedy? How about Motolla adding the great Jon Hamm to the mix, as well?
'Curb Your Enthusiasm' star Larry David has flirted with the big screen. He directed 'Sour Grapes,' which was released in 1998 to little fanfare, and appeared as the Woody Allen surrogate in 2009's 'Whatever Works.' He even recently appeared in the Farrelly brothers 'The Three Stooges.' But it looks like he's bringing his thing to the big screen as a leading man under the direction of Greg Mottola.
