Walden Media Developing Gene


Walden Media has picked up Gene, a modern take on the classic genie story from writer Randi Mayem Singer, says The Hollywood Reporter. Jordan Kerner is producing via his Kerner Entertainment.

While Walden company CEO Michael Bostick said that “Randi’s pitch combines originality, humor, heart and broad appeal that all ages can enjoy. It is everything Walden embraces with family comedies.”

Singer co-wrote Mrs. Doubtfire and also penned the upcoming Dwayne Johnson comedy Tooth Fairy and is now working on Big Momma’s House 3.
