The Curb Your Enthusiasm star will also serve as an executive producer on the project with Superbad's Greg Mottola as director, HBO co-president Richard Plepler said during the TCA summer press tour on Wednesday (August 1).
No synopsis was revealed for the upcoming film, except for the fact that it will not be Curb Your Enthusiasm movie.
The HBO movie could potentially delay a forthcoming season of Curb Your Enthusiasm, although it is said to be up to David to decide when he wants to do Curb again.
"He has essentially carte blanche," Plepler said. "When he wants [Curb] to come back, we'll be thrilled."
"I don't think he's closed the door to another season of Curb," HBO co-president Michael Lombardo added.
Curb Your Enthusiasm was recently nominated for three Emmy Awards including 'Outstanding Comedy Series'.
The comedy has aired eight seasons since its debut in the year 2000.
