New Line Finds ‘Jeff the Demon’

Variety is reporting that scribes Tom Scharpling and Joe Ventura have put something together that New Line Cinema couldn’t resist as their comedy script Jeff the Demon was just picked up by the studio for producers Scot Armstrong and Radar Pictures.

Jeff the Demon is the story of two high school losers who find a book that allows them to summon a power from the netherworld. The demon, Jeff, helps them win every battle and right every wrong in their lives, but they quickly discover that having all of their dreams come true can cause problems.

Armstrong was the co-writer on such pics as Old School and Starsky & Hutch, not to mention he is also the one behind the soon-to-be-shot romantic comedy The Heartbreak Kid over at DreamWorks with Jason Bateman and Amy Poehler set to start production in June.
