Back to big screen producing field after their latest outing in "The Ringer", Peter and Bobby Farrelly are partnering with National Lampoon Inc. via their Conundrum Entertainment to produce a comedy feature entitled "National Lampoon's Bag Boy", Variety has learned.
Intended to begin production before the end of the year, the project focuses on an underdog teen who discovers that he has the talent to excel in the world of competitive grocery bagging. Mort Nathan is in charge to direct as well as rewrite the script originally penned by Hans Rodionoff as Champion Fill.
Known to often take double job of writing and directing in their films, the Farrelly Brothers have been recognized for the use of slapstick and gross-out humor along with frequent inclusion of upbeat, light rock soundtracks in their movies. Past works included "There's Something About Mary", "Me, Myself & Irene", and "Shallow Hal."
