Todd Phillips will work on his "Untitled Russian Brides Project" at Warner Bros.
At last Todd Phillips can finally find a home for his 'brides.' Yes, the man, through his Todd Phillips Co., is set to develop his new film, "Untitled Russian Brides Project", at the giant company after the picture was disappointingly put into turnaround by Miramax.
Prior to this shift, Phillips actually had a production deal with Dimension Films, a former motion picture unit within Miramax, concerning the project. However, following its split from Bob and Harvey Weinstein, Miramax ultimately concluded to drop its involvement in the film with the rights reverting to the Todd Phillips Co.
As about the project itself, it has been reported that the flick will be made based on David Benioff's 2002 article of "Goodbye to Romance" published in Arena magazine which centers on a bunch of American guys who travel across Russia to search for brides. Benioff himself will also produce alongside Phillips who has a possibility to fill in the director's seat for this movie.
