"Mr. Machine" Shaped Under Universal



Universal Pictures has acquired another comedy flick titled "Mr. Machine."

Still fresh from putting "Magic 8 Ball" under its wing, Universal Picture is quick indeed to land another deal in another comedy pitch. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the company has successfully picked up "Mr. Machine", a high-concept family comedy written by David Gordon Green and Danny McBride.

Embracing the concepts of '80s films from Amblin Entertainment, the picture tells a story of three young men who create together a robot that later intends to take over the world. Imagine Entertainment's Brian Grazer will produce with Jon Heder plus his two brothers, Dan and Doug, negotiating to executive produce through their Greasy Entertainment.

If everything goes smooth, "Mr. Machine" then will be the first cinematic project from the "Napoleon Dynamite" actor who has been confirmed to not take part in playing a role in the movie.
