Warner Bros. Lassoes Stallions


Warner Bros. has bought Stallions, a comedy spec from reality TV producers Steve Sobel and Alan Wieder, who are making their first foray into feature film. Principato-Young principals Peter Principato and Paul Young are producing.

Stallions tackles 21st century fatherhood through the eyes of four longtime buddies. Three of the friends, all with new babies, struggle with the pressures of being a modern dad: lack of sex, annoying in-laws, changes of lifestyle and identity. Meanwhile, their womanizing bachelor friend, envious of his pals’ seemingly more meaningful lives, comes down with an unlikely case of baby fever.

The Hollywood Reporter says the studio is looking at it as a raunchy R-rated comedy.
