The Trigger Happy TV creator told DS that he is hoping to film the "Ben Hur of hidden camera films" in the US at the end of this year.
"Ours is taking the best bits of flashmobs and doing things with them that isn't a big dance," he said of the project.
"We've got huge crowd scenes in some of our jokes and, rather than paying bored extras, the idea is that people who like our comedy can not only watch it, you can be in it. I think it's quite empowering."
Asked about the title, Joly replied: "Yes, it is still called War of the Flea, but people keep saying, 'are you still calling it that?' I wanted to call it Big Dumb Stupid Movie but they didn't like that either.
"The point of it is that there's no point. There is no narrative arc and we've had to fight for that. It's just a big, stupid, fun movie - that's all it is."
