There is no ship. They're writing it right now. We've been talking a lot about it, and it seems really exciting and fun."

"If Ben and (writer) Justin (Theroux) want me to do it, we've been talking about it. I saw Ben a couple of days ago, and we've been talking a lot about it, and it's really exciting.
