Jemaine Clement, one half of the comedy duo Flight of the Conchords, will star in the indie drama People Places Things directed by James C. Strouse.
Kiwi comedian Clement will next appear on screen in the horror mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows in cinemas November 21.
Following appearances in Hollywood films like Dinner for Schmucks and Men in Black 3, The New Zealander will star in Strouse’s independent film as “a newly single, under-employed graphic novelist navigating life, his young twin daughters, a case of writer’s block, a classroom full of students, and a new love while letting go of the woman who left him,” reports Deadline.
Strouse also wrote and directed the John Cusack drama Grace is Gone.
Clement and Eagle vs Shark‘s Taika Waititi co-direct and play vampire flatmates Vladsislav and Viago in What We Do in the Shadows. The mockumentary follows the undead pair as they try to overcome every day squabbles about paying the rent, whose turn it is to do the housework and where the next square meal of human blood is coming from.
