Matt Lucas & David Walliams Working On A Big Screen Venture

Matt Lucas and David Walliams are working on a Hollywood movie in which both will appear as multiple characters.

The Little Britain stars are working on a script with the Dreamworks studio – but the film has not yet been given the green light.

However, Lucas would not be drawn on too many details details.

‘We've got an idea that excites us that we hope will appeal to audiences in lots of different countries,’ he told BBC News.

‘The two of us will play five or six characters that will go around together, so it'll be technically very challenging. We looked at people like Mike Myers and Eddie Murphy and how they appear as lots of different characters

‘It's a story we created with a writer called Will Davies and he's written a script. The film has not been green-lit yet so it would be foolish to say the name of it.’

The movie will be produced by Ben Stiller's production company, Red Hour, which made the current box office hit, Tropic Thunder.
