EXCLUSIVE: New Line has made a pre-emptive deal for Brothers Of The Bride, a comedy pitch that will be written by PJ Byrne, Terry Scannell, Aaron Ginsburg and Wade McIntyre. Ben Stiller’s Red Hour will produce what sounds like a pretty good one. A dying father makes his three estranged sons promise they will work together to stop their little sister from marrying her obnoxious fiance. Byrne will play the middle brother in the sibling troika. He most recently was seen in The Wolf Of Wall Street and Horrible Bosses and Final Destination 5, the latter two for New Line. He’s currently starring in the CBS drama Intelligence, where he met Ginsburg and McIntyre.
Debbie Liebling brought it into Red Hour and Dave Neustadter and Walter Hamada will oversee it for New Line. Byrne and Scannell are repped by Principato-Young and Byrne also by Michael Greene and Associates. Ginsburg and McIntyre are at WME.
