Universal Pictures has pre-emptively picked up The Cookie Queen, a comedy from screenwriters Jeremy Haft and Ed Gonzalez to which Isla Fisher (Wedding Crashers) is attached to star. Fisher also is on board as a producer along with Mosaic Media.
The story follows Claire “Cookie” Taylor (Fisher), who holds the record for all-time girl scout cookie sales. When she learns that a precocious fifth grader threatens to end her 20-year reign as cookie queen, she sets out to sabotage her.
Haft and Gonzalez, repped by Summit Talent & Literary and Nine Yards, wrote Heckled, a comedy set up at New Line Cinema with Vince Vaughn attached.
