20th Century Fox has picked up film rights to "Matchbreaker", a spec script written by Adam Sztykiel.
Landing another propitious deal, 20th Century Fox has secured the film rights to a spec script by writer Adam Sztykiel, The Hollywood Reporter has revealed. Shawn Levy has been confirmed to produce the project, titled "Matchbreaker", through his 21 Laps Entertainment with an eye to direct.
The basic idea of the movie originally was generated internally at 21 Laps before it was developed into a screenplay by Sztykiel. Plot details are being kept secret, but Levy delightfully has given a hint about the flick, saying it as a "high-concept comedy about two guys and a girl set against a vibrant cultural backdrop, which we haven't seen in a movie before."
Also known as an actor, Levy has helmed more than twenty screen features since his foray into the field in 1994. His latest work, "Night at the Museum", starring "Frat Pack" members Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller will hit theaters on December 22 this year.
