In a competitive situation, Universal Pictures has acquired the rights to the comedy “The Pact” starring Leslie Mann and set it to open on April 20, 2018.

Mann co-stars with Ike Barinholtz and John Cena with “Pitch Perfect” scribe Kay Cannon making her directorial debut.

Eben Russell, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, and brothers Brian and Jim Kehoe wrote the script for Point Grey, Good Universe, Hurwitz & Schlossberg Productions, and DMG.

The film follows three parents who, upon discovering that their daughters have made a pact to lose their virginities on prom night, go out and try and stop them before it’s too late.

Point Grey’s Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg, and James Weaver will produce alongside Hurwitz and Schlossberg, and DMG Entertainment’s Chris Fenton. Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake of Good Universe will executive produce with Chris Cowles of DMG.

Josh Fagen will oversee production for Point Grey, and EVP of production Erik Baiers and director of development Chloe Yellin will oversee on behalf of Universal.

Mann is repped by CAA and Steve Warren at Hansen Jacobson, Barinholtz is represented by UTA, Principato Young Entertainment and Jared Levin at Morris Yorn, Cena is repped by ICM Partners and Cannon is repped by WME.

I was sold the second I found out Rogen/Goldberg were involved.  Plot sounds interesting too.  Probably can expect a trailer with Pitch Perfect 3 at the end of the year, maybe a bit earlier with Let it Snow.

 

Bad Moms Christmas. R-rated parental comedies.

When three parents stumble upon their daughters’ pact to lose their virginity at prom, they launch a covert one-night operation to stop the teens from sealing the deal. Leslie Mann (The Other Woman, This Is 40), Ike Barinholtz (Neighbors, Suicide Squad) and John Cena (Trainwreck, Sisters) star in Blockers, the directorial debut of Kay Cannon (writer of the Pitch Perfect series).

The comedy is produced by Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver, under their Point Grey Pictures banner (Neighbors, This Is the End), alongside Jon Hurwitz & Hayden Schlossberg (Harold & Kumar series) and DMG Entertainment’s Chris Fenton (47 Ronin).

american comedy really needs another movie that's gonna kick it into a different "phase". it's in a pretty stale place right now.

 

I think a lot of these movies were greenlit pre-Trump. Might have to wait until late 2018 until something new takes over.
