Actor Rainn Wilson and director Jason Reitman are set to team up in developing comedy flick "Bonzai Shadowhands" for Fox Searchlight.

Set to make a memorable collaboration, "The Office" star and director Jason Reitman will work hand in hand to bring up a comedy project entitled to the surface for Fox Searchlight.

Not only taking a starring part, Wilson is also attached to pen the script as well as executive produce while Reitman, apart from directing, will serve as the movie's producer along with his Hard C partner Daniel Dubiecki. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but it is said that the flick's tone will be somewhat serious despite its comedic genre.

"It's 'Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon' meets 'Midnight Cowboy'," Reitman revealed. "We wanted to do something that was more than a light comedy. We feel it could be a movie that had something to say."
