David Gordon Green, the director of Pineapple Express and the upcoming Your Highness (starring our latest cover subject, and Green's longtime pal, Danny McBride), is close to getting his pilot for Black Jack ordered by Comedy Central.

This single-camera comedy would be produced and directed by Green, and would focus on an ex-U.S. assassin who's decommissioned and forced to live a normal life.

Whether or not the pilot gets put in front of cameras is solely dependent on who gets cast in the lead. Comedy Central is looking for star power in order to get ratings.

For those looking to get their David Gordon Green fix sooner than that, be sure to check out Your Highness when it's released on April 8.
