Good things come in threes.

According to an interview with The National Post (via The Playlist), director Peter Bogdanovich is set to prove this mantra true, as he is set to team with directors Wes Anderson and Noah Baumbach for a brand new project.

The outlet recently spoke to the legendary encyclopedia-in-a-human-body Bogdanovich, who revealed that he is planning to helm a new comedy entitled SQUIRREL TO THE NUTS, with Anderson and Baumbach producing. 

“It’s a screwball comedy about an escort, a theatre director and a private detective,” he said. Sounds perfect to me.

If you’ve had the chance to see any of Bogdanovich’s pieces, you realize that both Baumbach and Anderson have been massively influenced by the legend, and would be absolutely perfect producing partners for Bogdanovich. The title may very well be a turn-off, at least for this writer, but this premise seems absolutely perfect for the filmmaker, and with Anderson and Baumbach producing, this is definitely one film I can’t wait to check out.

If you are unfamiliar with Bogdanovich’s work, please, for the love of all things holy, pick up the upcoming Criterion release of THE LAST PICTURE SHOW when it hits as part of the BBS Films set. It’s one of the true masterpieces of that era, and has stood the test of time.
