Sony Pictures Entertainment and Will Smith's Overbrook production company will team up to develop a flick entitled "Sister of Mercy" from Steven Bloom's spec script.
Finding each other still eager to work together after their latest project "The Pursuit of Happyness", Sony Pictures Entertainment and Will Smith are set to collaborate once again in developing a new big screen feature titled "Sisters of Mercy", Variety has reported.
Written by Steven Bloom, the picture focuses on a widower father who is rescued after his wife's death by members of her book club, who soon begin running his life with their advice on parenting and dating. Smith will serve as the film's producer via his Overbrook production company alongside partner James Lassiter and Alex Siskin.
Bloom, a native of Buffalo, New York, previously had been involved in the writings for "Tall Tale" (1995) and "James and the Giant Peach" (1996) which both were Disney's projects. He last worked on the teleplay for TNT's 2004 TV-movie feature "The Winning Season."
