20th Century Fox has acquired Dan Ewen’s spec Dear Satan for the Farrelly brothers and Conundrum Entertainment to produce. The tale follows a 7-year old girl who accidentally misspells “Santa” in her letter to the North Pole and instead invites Satan to bring her a toy for Christmas. Ewen’s body-switch comedy Opposites Attract is set up at Bold Films with Kyle Newman directing. The scribe is currently writing the re-boot of Yash Rash Films’ Bollywood pic Bunty Aur Babli, and his family comedy Playing With Fire is being produced by Todd Garner and Sean Robins at Broken Road Productions. Ewen is repped by APA and manager Christopher Pratt.
