Talking on the set of his upcoming comedy co-starring Aziz Ansari, Danny McBride has finally let slip details of the budding duo's next project.

"'Olympic-Size A--hole' is a film they set up through a company that I work with called Rough House," McBride told MTV from the set of "30 Minutes or Less." "It's about this Olympic athlete who comes back to his hometown and he bangs mine and Aziz's girlfriends. So we go on this mission to destroy his Olympic life."

The film is being written by "Parks and Recreation" scribe Harris Wittels working of an idea from Ansari and "30 Rock" writer Matt Hubbard.

Now the obvious first question is, what are the chances that title sticks? Of late we've seen the title of the Natalie Portman-Ashton Kutcher romcom "F***buddies" changed to "Friends With Benefits" before becoming "No Strings." At the start of this year no one  thought the Steve Carell-Paul Rudd comedy would actually be called "Dinner With Schmucks." There's a lot of territory to be staked out between "F***buddies" and "Schmucks."

Meanwhile, McBride and Ansari will finish shooting "30 Minutes or Less," an action-comedy about a pizza deliveryman and a teacher forced to rob a bank, with director Rueben Fleischer off "Zombieland" fame.
