With their upcoming obtuse-love-triangle comedy "Cyrus" set to debut at Sundance, the Duplass Brothers have revealed that their next project will be a stoner-comedy set to shoot this spring, says Movieweb.

According to Movieweb: After they recently finished the upcoming comedy “Cyrus” for Fox Searchlight, the Duplass Brothers are set to make a quest movie that has elements of “The Sword in the Stone.” Entitled “Jeff Who Lives at Home,” it’s about a stoner and his search for some wood glue.

Said Duplass: "Our next movie is called 'Jeff Who Lives at Home.' It's our take on a quest movie. 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."

The plot sounds pretty vague, but how specific do they need to be for a stoner comedy anyway? The film seems like it could be another “Harold and Kumar,” but at the same time it looks as if the brothers are trying to take their film in a different direction. Having Jason Reitman involved is only a plus, so this film could have some real potential.

The brothers’ upcoming comedy, “Cyrus,” is an improvisational film starring John C. Reilly, Jonah Hill, Marisa Tomei and Catherine Keener. The plot centers on a bizarre love triangle between a man, his girlfriend and her son.
