The Hollywood Reporter says that writer/director Rob Pearlstein (“Medium”) and Imagine Entertainment have sold a comedy pitch titled True North, that has Ed Helms attached to star and executive produce. The trade describes the project as follows:
“It centers on a high-powered, workaholic father (Helms) who slips into a two-year coma after suffering through a horrific plane crash. Upon emerging from the coma, the once debonair man finds that he has undergone reconstructive facial surgery and looks nothing like his former self. He then must track down his family and reconnect with his former life.”
Helms-starrer The Hangover Part II has already made $495.9 million worldwide this summer.
