If you ever think that Ken Jeong deserves his own movie, then there's good news. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jeong is set to star in a Summit Entertainment comedy called International Incident. Steve Carell is in talks to produce.

To be scripted by David Javerbaum from his own pitch, International Incident is said to revolve around five United Nations delegates who set out on a road trip to find one of the five's long lost love.

Sounds like it's going to be a multi-national effort.

Jeong, a real life doctor, got his breakthrough role in the Hangover movies as the gangster Mr. Chow and has since gotten larger supporting roles since then, but International Incident will be his first as the leading man.

He is voicing the character Short Fuse in the forthcoming animation The Penguins of Madagascar, which is dropping in theaters this November 26.
