Touchstone Pictures has bought Wedding Banned, a comedy spec script by Jack Amiel and Michael Begler, reports Variety.
The story centers on a long-divorced couple who kidnap their daughter on her wedding day to keep her from making the mistake of her life. The divorced parents rekindle their relationship as they elude cops and the angry groom.
Mandeville’s David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman will produce with Nicole Rocklin and Blye Faust. Rocklin and Faust developed the project with the screenwriters.
Hoberman and Lieberman previously worked with Amiel and Begler on the comedies Raising Helen and The Shaggy Dog.
