Ken Jeong has stolen scenes in Knocked Up, Role Models and The Hangovertrilogy. Now he’s set to headline a comedy of his own, produced by Steve Carell.

THR reports Ken Jeong is attached to front International Incident, a comedy penned by former The Daily Show With Jon Stewart scribe David Javerbaum. The Jeong vehicle’s story will follow five United Nations delegates who set out on a roadtrip–presumably across America–to rediscover a lost love. It’s unclear at this time if they all share the same lost love or if there are five separate people being sought out in this adventure. No other cast members have yet been revealed.

International Incident has been pulled together by Charlie Hartsock and Vance Degeneres, creative executives of Steve Carell’s production company Carousel. Carell is currently in negotiations to produce International Incident, but there’s no word as to whether he’s also considering a role in the film. Carell has previously worked with David Javerbaum on The Daily Show With Jon Stewart and the 2001 Comedy Central special Steve Carell Salutes Steve Carell. ” – cinemablend
