Universal Keeps An Eye on "Little Lover Boy"



Universal Pictures has picked up the rights to "Little Lover Boy", a comedic feature penned by funnyman Rick Overton.

"Little Lover Boy" eventually finds a proper home to stay at. Variety has reported that Universal Pictures has successfully obtained the rights to the Rick Overton-penned comedy. Overton first showed the script to his longtime acquaintance Dennis Miller who later brought it to the producers.

While the film's cast and director still remain a mystery, it has been reported that the flick follows the adventure of a small-time crook who gets abducted by aliens then swipes their spaceship and teams up with an alien pilot for a Robin Hood-inspired intergalactic road trip. Mary Parent, Scott Stuber, and Jimmy Miller are all producing.

Won an Emmy Award in 1996 for his writing work in "Dennis Miller Live!", Overton is also known as a standup comic and actor, being last seen on the big screen in Jim Carrey's 2005 vehicle of "Fun with Dick and Jane." His upcoming movies include "A Plumm Summer" and "The Last Stand."
