Wayne McClammy, the director of the Sarah Silverman and Jimmy Kimmel viral videos “I’m F**king Matt Damon” and “I’m F**king Ben Affleck,” respectively, is in negotiations to helm Universal’s comedy Desperados.
The project is being developed as a potential star vehicle for Isla Fisher. Written by Ellen Rapoport, Desperados is described as a female-oriented The Hangover.
The Hollywood Reporter says “the story is about a woman who sends an indignant email to her new beau, who has gone silent after they have sex, only to discover he’s comatose in a Mexican hospital. Panicking, she races south of the border with her friends in tow to intercept the email before he recovers.”
Production is expected to begin by year’s end. Mark Gordon and Jason Blum are producing.
