Warner Bros. Acquires Weekend Warrior


Warner Bros. has acquired Weekend Warrior (not to be confused with ComingSoon.net’s Weekend Warrior), a comedy pitch that will be produced by Andrew Lazar (Get Smart) through his Mad Chance.

Variety says the movie will be written by Bill Birch, an actor who is attached to the WB pic Pre-Astronauts.

Weekend Warrior revolves around an armchair home-repair enthusiast with no construction skills who unwittingly becomes a superhero who fights supernatural forces bent on destroying the world. The trade says the idea is to create a Ghostbusters-like comic romp that’s heavy on special effects.
