Maya Rudolph, John Krasinski (Jim from The Office), and Cheryl Hines (the wife on Curb Your Enthusiasm) have signed on for an upcoming comedy to be directed by Sam Mendes (who previously directed American Beauty).

The as-yet untitled comedy from Focus Features is the first original screenplay written by husband and wife team Dave Eggers and Vendela Vida.  Eggers, who recently adapted Where the Wild Things Are with Spike Jonze, is a well-known author, and editor of the quirky lit quarterly McSweeney’s.  Vida is a novelist and the editor of The Believer.
