Farrelly Brothers Eyeing Beaujolais


Variety reports that 20th Century Fox has preemptively bought Mike Arnold and Chris Poole’s script Beaujolais for Bobby and Peter Farrelly to produce through their Conundrum production company as a potential directing vehicle.

The project has been dubbed a redneck action-adventure with a protagonist along the lines of an Austin Powers or Ace Ventura.

Conundrum’s Bradley Thomas is producing alongside the Farrellys.

“We haven’t stepped up and done something like us in a while,” Bobby Farrelly said. “Everything sort of aligned for us on this project.”
