"The Awakening" of Jeff Baena



"I Heart Huckabees" scribe Jeff Baena has been appointed by Warner Bros. Pictures to pen the script of its new comedy "The Awakening of Jean-Luc Barbara."

Taking a new writing stint after being last noticed co-penning David O. Russell's "I Heart Huckabees", Jeff Baena is on board to work on the screenplay of "The Awakening of Jean-Luc Barbara" for Warner Bros. Pictures, Variety has revealed.

A battle-of-the-sexes comedy, the project will be the feature directorial debut of Justin Reardon, who has been known as a commercial director. In the meantime, Warner will collaborate with Tapestry Films to develop the flick.

No production schedule has been set up yet for the movie, but it is confirmed that Andrew Panay, Peter Abrams, Robert L. Levy, and Michael Schreiber are all serving as producers.
