What has Chris Morris been up to?

I was wondering what Chris Morris has been up to recently (as I haven't known of any projects since Barley, which was, well, ages ago.  According to Wikipedia:

The Guardian reported that Morris is working on a film satirising terrorism and suicide bombers for Channel 4. The project, titled Four Lions was turned down by both the BBC and Channel 4 for its controversial subject matter, but has been picked up by Film Four. Morris told The Sunday Times that, the film will seek to do for Islamic terrorism what Dad's Army, the classic BBC comedy, did for the Nazis by showing them as “scary but also ridiculous”.

This sounds AMAZING.   Oh, I hope it sees the light of day soon.  Is there a more excellent satirist working today (at least in a culture I am familiar with)?
