Columbia Pictures has made a deal for an untitled comedy that will be written as a star vehicle for David Spade and Chris Rock, says Variety. Spade will write the script with Fred Wolf and Adam Sandler’s Happy Madison will produce.
The movie is about a turf battle between three families who vie for the same camping spot in a public park over a weekend.
Spade and Wolf previously co-wrote the films Joe Dirt and Dickie Roberts. They have been working together since the latter was head writer on “Saturday Night Live” and Spade was a cast member.
Rock just co-wrote, directed and starred in the Fox Searchlight comedy I Think I Love My Wife.
