Fox Searchlight has picked up Bonzai Shadowlands, a feature comedy that marks the screenwriting debut of The Office's Rainn Wilson, who will also star as a once-great ninja now mired in a life of mediocrity. Wilson, who is penning the script during his NBC comedy's hiatus, tells the Hollywood Reporter that he plans to enlist his Office mates for help in honing the humor. "I'm going to take my outline to all of the writers and one by one get their ideas and feedback. By the end of that, it will be kick-ass in a way only a ninja can kick ass."
