If you were instantly taken with the low-key indie The Puffy Chair (and by “you”, I mean “me”), then you know Jay and Mark Duplass. The writing/directing brothers have leaped — okay gradually walked — from the semi-mumblecore indie world into the universe of major distribution. Now Movieweb has learned of Jeff Who Lives At Home, the pair’s 2nd studio movie, about a stoner in search of some wood glue. Yeah, that’s the plot, what can we tell you.

Jay Duplass and Mark Duplass

As for the Duplass’ debut studio film, it’s the upcoming Cyrus, a relationship comedy starring Marisa Tomei, John C. Reilly and Jewish Movie Mafia member Jonah Hill.  We’re expecting plenty of improv and quirkiness.

Back to Jeff Who Lives At Home. Here’s Mark Duplass’ description of the film, as told to Movieweb:

It’s like a Sword in the Stone movie. But it’s starring a stoner who is looking for wood glue. We are always going to mess with genre and use it to our favor. I can’t say too much, because my press team will maul me. Jason Reitman is producing for us. We are shooting in the spring. This is the movie we were born to make. We are more than ready to jump into this one.

Look for Jeff Who Lives At Home some time in 2011. Casting is to be announced.

Their brand of quirky low-key character connections is on fine display in their latest, Cyrus, an uncomfortable comedy-drama starring Jonah Hill, John C. Reilly and Marisa Tomei — it’s the boys’ foray into the studio world after The Puffy Chair and Baghead. (thank you, Fox Searchlight). […]
