Larry Charles will write and may direct a reimagined version of the cult Australian hit The Man Who Sued God for New Films International (NFI).

NFI founder and president Nesim Hason and Mace Neufeld will produce with Sixth Sense Productions principals Richard Harding and Sam Feuer.

Charles’ take on The Man Who Sued God is expected to veer from the original premise, which involves a former lawyer who sues an insurance company pretending to be the Almighty.

The Man Who Sued God is the second project to come through NFI’s multi-title development deal with Neufeld after WWII action thriller The Pursuit.
