Paramount Buys New Family Adventure Comedy


Paramount has bought a family-oriented adventure-comedy pitch from director Jim Field Smith (Hard 10) and George Kay, who will write the script with Field Smith.

The Hollywood Reporter says the logline is being kept under wraps, but those familiar with the project describe it as a fantasy-tinged four-quadrant comedy in the vein of Night at the Museum.

Field Smith and Kay are teaming up to direct and write, respectively, Good Luck Anthony Belcher, a British indie whose script recently topped the Brit List, that country’s version of the Black List.
