Montecito Pictures Goes for Underage


Montecito Pictures has bought the romantic comedy spec Underage by the writing team of Scott Neustadter and Mike Weber (Pink Panther Deux).

The story is centered on a man in his mid- to late 20s who goes home with a young woman he’s met in a bar. Later, he discovers she’s only 17 — a fact that allows her to blackmail him into being her boyfriend for the next six months.

Montecito and DreamWorks co-financed Disturbia and they are in post-production on Hotel for Dogs and horror-thriller The Uninvited, formerly known as “A Tale of Two Sisters.”
