EXCLUSIVE: After scripting Red and seeing it hit as an action comedy built around an aging cast, Jon and Erich Hoeber have been set by Summit Entertainment for another action comedy. This one doesn’t have a title, but I’m told it’s a female-centric Ocean’s Eleven-esque action film that originally was set up as a pitch by David Weisberg & Douglas Cook.
The scribes also wrote the Red sequel, which brings back the original cast and adds Anthony Hopkins, Catherine Zeta-Jones and David Thewlis to the mix. As for the untitled action comedy, it’s produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura and Mark Vahradian with Benderspink exec producing. Verve reps the scribes.
