ON

Ken Kaufman and David Agosto have sold an action-comedy pitch — for the moment titled Wardogs — to MGM with Get Smart helmer Peter Segal attached to direct, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Segal and his Callahan Filmworks partner Michael Ewing are producing along with Andrew Lazar.

The producers are keeping quiet on the plot, but Lazar said that “it’s an action ensemble comedy in the vein of ‘Ocean’s Eleven,’ where the casting becomes an event.”

Added Ewing, “It is a bunch of these terrific actors getting together and having a good timeĀ‚ it’s that kind of thing.”
