Coto, Ratner Creating Wild Boys


Carlos Coto, co-exec producer of “24,” has teamed with Brett Ratner on an hourlong action comedy project for Fox, reports Variety.

The network has given a script order, with penalty attached, to “Wild Boys,” a project about ex-soldiers turned suburban dads.

The project revolves around three dads who are working as contractors in the Washington, D.C., suburbs — until the economic downturn puts them out of work. The Iraq war vets decide to get back in touch with their previous lives and sell themselves as guns for hire.

In “Wild Boys,” the lead characters must balance their domestic chores while embarking on dangerous assignments.

Depending on his schedule, Ratner is in line to direct should “Wild Boys” go to pilot.
