Jennifer Garner is teaming with Stuber/Parent’s Scott Stuber and Mary Parent to produce and possibly star in comedy Devil in the Junior League for Universal.
Variety says Garner will produce through Vandalia Films, the company she runs with Juliana James. Laura Hooper is producing as well.
The adaptation of Linda Francis Lee’s novel will revolve around a stuffy Southern socialite whose husband disappears with another woman — and her fortune. She turns to a lawyer who says he’ll help in exchange for helping his flashy, less-than-appropriate wife get into the Junior League.
Universal is picking up the project from Fox 2000.
Also on Vandalia’s production slate is Christmas in Connecticut, Be With You and Sabbatical. Garner is attached to star in the “Christmas” remake and Be With You.
