Rejoice, people. Deadline has just confirmed that Jerry Seinfeld will direct and star in Unfrosted, an upcoming film he co-wrote alongside Spike Feresten and Barry Marder. It's based on a classic standup joke from the comedian about the invention of Pop-Tarts.
It was greenlit by Netflix, where it will stream exclusively, with production for the film set to start next spring.
Seinfeld explains the origins: “Stuck at home watching endless sad faces on TV, I thought this would be a good time to make something based on pure silliness. So we took my Pop-Tart stand-up bit from my last Netflix special and exploded it into a giant, crazy comedy movie.”
