Justin Theroux wants to direct a comedy

August 14, 2011 - Washington

Justin Theroux has revealed that he wants to direct a comedy after seeing how well Ben Stiller dealt with 'Tropic Thunder'.

The 'Wanderlust' actor, who co-wrote 'Your Highness' with Ben Stiller, has admitted that working on the action satire opened his eyes to how rewarding working in a comedy can be.

"I've been working on 'Documental' for HBO, which I am the director of with Steve Coogan. I think I'd like to do a comedy," Contactmusic quoted him as saying.

"When we did 'Tropic Thunder', Ben was such a good director. It was fun watching him and that's what is great about the action-comedy genre, you get to scratch the edge of doing big, huge movies but don't have to deliver on drama. I'd like to do something like that, an action comedy," he added.
