"Jewtopia" creators Bryan Fogel and Sam Wolfson are set to write and star in a film loosely based on their playwriting work titled "Chris O'Connell and Adam Lipschitz Lose Their Religion."
Taking a flight from the off-Broadway stage, the creative minds behind hit play "Jewtopia" are ready to enter the big screen.
Yes, Bryan Fogel and Sam Wolfson, the play's co-creators and lead actors, have reportedly been assigned to both write and star in a film version of their own work following "Shadowboxer" producer Tucker Tooley's successful attempt to pick up the rights to a screenplay loosely based on the play.
Titled "Chris O'Connell and Adam Lipschitz Lose Their Religion", the project concerns a pair of longtime friends who try to help each other in finding soul mates. Things get complicated when both of them ignite their family's chagrin for falling in love with women of different faiths.
Apart from the inclusion of Fogel and Wolfson, there are no words yet on other cast members and director, but it has been revealed that production on the film is scheduled to start in February next year.
