It looks like Eva Mendes and comedian Larry David will soon have a clear history together…
The 38-year-old Cuban American actress has joined the all-star cast of HBO‘s newly titled Clear History, an original movie co-written and top-lined by David and co-starring Kate Hudson, Jon Hamm and Danny McBride.
Directed by Greg Mottola, the movie centers on Nathan Flomm (David), a former marketing executive at a start-up electric car company who, after losing a fortune due to a petty argument with his boss, is publicly humiliated for walking away from his 10 percent of a company now worth billions. Ten years later, his marriage over and reputation ruined, Nathan has changed his identity and lives a simple life on a small island off the coast of Massachusetts under the new name of Rolly DaVore. But when his former boss (Hamm) shows up to renovate his summer mansion, Nathan vows to seek his revenge and drive his nemesis off the island.
Mendes, who was recently named on of the most dangerous celebrities on the web, is set to portray an islander who takes an off-handed suggestion from David’s character a bit too seriously, causing him no end of trouble.
Clear History will start shooting in Massachusetts in the fall.
No word yet on an expected premiere date.
