Tin Cup director Ron Shelton has signed for Q School, a golf comedy he will direct based on a script he co-wrote with “Cup” collaborator John Norville.
Dennis Quaid and Tim Allen are eyeing starring roles in the project, which David Friendly is producing via his Friendly Films Productions. The indie aims to start shooting in the spring.
“School” is described as a comedy in which a group of hopefuls battle it out in a competition to make the PGA Tour, with both their game and their personal lives sometimes ending up in the drink along the way.
Shelton’s credits include Bull Durham and White Men Can’t Jump.
