Universal Holds Best Man-A-Thon


Universal is in final negotiations to buy screenwriter Richard Rapoza’s raucous matrimonial comedy Best Man-A-Thon, with Stuber Productions’ Scott Stuber and Pam Abdy set to produce a big-screen version.

“Man-A-Thon” finds its lead character in a dilemma: His childhood best friend and college best friend hate each other, and after each makes him their best man, both expect the same job at his wedding. The pair reject his offer to share the role and decide to compete for the spot in wedding-related contests.

“My dad was a best man five times for guys who all considered him their best friend, and they all expected him to return the favor,” said Rapoza.
