DreamWorks to Make Wife vs. Ninja


Variety says that DreamWorks has bought Michael Besman’s pitch Wife vs. Ninja, which centers on a Long Island housewife who discovers that the beautiful young intern who recently stole her scientist husband is actually a bloodthirsty Ninja assassin intent on stealing his work.

Besman (About Schmidt, The Opposite of Sex) will write the script with newcomers Michael Zam and Jaffe Cohen. Besman will also produce.

“We fell in love with the mix of action and laughs in (the story),” said co-president of production Holly Bario.
