Bob and Harvey Weinstein's TWC-Dimension announced today that they are teaming up with Endgame on the action whodunit comedy Murder Mystery. Anne Fletcher (The Proposal, 27 Dresses) is set to direct with a script written by James Vanderbilt (Zodiac, The Amazing Spider-Man).
In the film, a married couple takes the honeymoon they never had in hopes of saving their struggling marriage, but soon find themselves in the middle of their very own murder mystery when one of their fellow cruise passengers is found dead. They must travel across Europe to discover the true murderer’s identity while trying to reignite the spark to their relationship.
"'Murder Mystery' is a throwback to Agatha Christie novels with a comedic spin. We have been huge fans of Anne Fletcher for years and have wanted to work with her. This film seems like the perfect project to team up with Anne, Endgame and Tripp," said Bob Weinstein and Harvey Weinstein, co-chairmen of The Weinstein Company.
"James's script is absolutely great. It's a modern version of the old ‘Nick and Nora’ movies... it has it all - suspense, romance and humor," stated Endgame Entertainment’s James D. Stern. "Bob and Harvey shared that sentiment and I am thrilled to partner with them again, and Anne is just the perfect director to bring this story to the screen."
Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson are producing along with Vanderbilt, Endgame Entertainment's James D. Stern and Oscar-winner Charlize Theron via her Denver and Delilah Productions banner. Endgame’s Douglas E. Hansen, Tower Hill's William Shively and Denver and Delilah's Beth Kono and A.J. Dix will executive produce.
