Peter Serafinowicz Directing I See What You Did There
He's cooked up a dark comedy with Danny Wallace

You know him from the likes of Spaced and Shaun Of The Dead. Or science goof Look Around You, or his many hilarious impressions. Or even as the comic gold mine that is Brian Butterfield. But Peter Serafinowicz has also been building a reputation as a director, working on music videos for bands such as Hot Chip. He’s now branching out on to the big screen with his film-directing debut, I See What You Did There.

Twitch brings word that Serafinowicz has co-written the script with Yes Man’s Danny Wallace, and it’s apparently a dark comedy. I See What You Did There finds a comedian going ballistic and killing a particularly annoying heckler, only to discover that his biggest fan has witnessed the crime. Definite shades of The King Of Comedy, Misery, and even I Know What You Did Last Summer.

With the writing team now hard at work refining the latest draft, the plan is to shoot next year, assuming the financing comes together. Meanwhile, Serafinowicz will be back on cinema screens next year for a small role in Muppets Most Wanted, out here on March 21. Take a look at one of his inventive, ace music vids below.
