Writer-director attached to comedy.
THR reports that ‘I Love You Man’ writer-director John Hamburg is attached to direct the upcoming comedy ‘Brother From Another Mother.’
Penned by Hamburg (‘Along Came Polly,’ ‘Zoolander,’ ‘Safe Men’) the comedy follows “two estranged brothers — one brilliant but aimless, the other a precocious and sheltered teen — who share the same father and are thrust together on a road trip.”
20th Century Fox is in currently in negotiations to pick up the project out of turnaround from DreamWorks, who initially acquired the script last summer. DreamWorks will retain the option to co-finance if the project gets the go-ahead.
