Filmmaker Jake Szymanski has been roped in by Netflix to direct comedy "Eggplant Emoji". Kevin Burrows and Matt Mider, the creators of digital animated series "Gentlemen Lobsters", have written the script for the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Ben Stiller and Nicky Weinstock are producing via their Red Hour Films banner. Szymanski made his feature debut with last year's Zac Efron comedy "Mike and Dave Need Wedding Dates", but established his comedy credits with numerous "Funny or Die" and "Saturday Night Live" shorts.
He also directed the tennis mockumentary "7 Days in Hell" and HBO's latest mockumentary "Tour de Pharmacy".
