HBO announced Wednesday that they have a deal with comedian Larry David to do a movie in which he will write and star–playing someone other than himself.

While there aren’t many other details available, there are rumors that the project also has Jon Hamm and Michael Keaton attached to star, with Greg Mottola on board to direct.

The untitled movie is unaffiliated with Larry’s HBO series “Curb Your Enthusiasm” and will not affect the possibilities of future seasons of the cult comedy.

“Larry has carte blanche with us, it’s up to him if he wants to come back and do more ‘Curb’ … we’ll always have him,” HBO executives told TV reporters Wednesday at the Television Critics Association Press Tour in Beverly Hills. “I don’t think he’s closed the door to another season of ‘Curb.’”

HBO also revealed they have a Rolling Stones documentary in the works pegged to the band’s 50th anniversary.

The network also announced that it has renewed two of its freshman series “Girls” and “Enlightened” for second seasons.

Both shows will return with 10 new episodes airing in January 2013.

“Enlightened” stars Laura Dern as an ambitious executive trying to rebound from a humiliating public nervous breakdown.

“Girls” is a comedy created by and starring Lena Dunham that centers on the often-awkward exploits of a group of twentysomething girls. It recently received five Emmy nominations, including Outstanding Comedy and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy for Dunham.
