I found it. The picture's working title is "I Love Huckabee's"

NEW YORK (Variety) - In his first film since 1999's "Three Kings," David O. Russell is moving quickly to mount a comedy on existentialism.



He's got Mark Wahlberg, Gwyneth Paltrow, Jude Law, Jason Schwartzman, Dustin Hoffman , Lily Tomlin and Catherine Deneuve lining up to join him. Russell hopes to shoot in June in Los Angeles.


"It's an ensemble comedy centering around a married couple," Russell said. "They are detectives who solve existential crises for people. It was an idea of mine that I wrote with Jeff Baena."


The picture's working title is "I Love Huckabee's," employing the symbol of a heart for the word love. Russell would not explain the significance of Huckabee's, but evidently the concept is a strong one, because he is flirting with that cast on a film whose budget is less than $20 million. "We will be trying to work out favored-nations deals," Russell said.


The film's tone is closer to his 1996 Miramax film "Flirting With Disaster," than it is to his WB film "Three Kings."


Russell has aligned Miramax and Warner Bros. in a co-production scenario that is still coming together. The plan is for WB to take the creative lead and foreign territories, while Miramax handles domestic distribution.

That is one H ELL of a cast. I never thought I'd see Jason Schwartzman and Mark in the same movie, either. David Russell was an excellent director on 3 kings too. I can't wait! Thanks for posting this.

Hi markluver09 did you ever see Rushmore? I thought Jason Schwartzman was very funny. I like him.

Yes Kazuko, I love Rushmore! And Jason is also the drummer for Phantom Planet, who I love.

News finally on what exactly Mark is playing in this movie from my local paper

Wahlberg plays an environmentally conscious firefighter, "a working-class intellectual" who rides his bike behind the fire truck
