UPDATE: Looks like I was premature in describing this as a sex tape movie. CBS Films informs me that yeah, there is a tape that circulates from a bachelor party that is the propulsion for the guys going to wilderness camp. But the guys in it keep their clothes on and merely act like complete doofuses and off they go to learn some street smarts. So the sex tape analogy has no staying power. Sorry about that.

EARLIER: While the rest of us will wait till the weekend climaxes to see if the Sony Pictures comedy Sex Tape measures up, others seem sold on the concept. CBS Films ends the week acquiring Man Up, a comedy that has Zac Levi attached to star and Hall Pass scribes Chris Pappas and Kevin Barnett writing. The log line: after a video of a disastrous and embarrassing bachelor party goes viral, four metro-sexual guys decide to go to survival camp and learn how to man up. Pic’s based on an idea by Levi.

Nicky Weinstock is producing with Levi. Invention Films’ Whitney Thomas will be exec producer. Levi recently starred in Alvin And The Chipmunks: The Squeakwel, lent his voice to Tangled, and was seen in Thor: The Dark World. CAA and Peter Principato rep Levi, Pappas and Barnett are at CAA with Jeff Okin at Anonymous.
