Universal Pictures is on the move to develop a comedic feature about bicycle racing and a thriller produced by Daniel Bobker and Ehren Kruger.
Wasting no time in setting up more big screen features at its pit, Universal Pictures has secured rights to develop not only one but two projects of different genre.
The first one is a comedy titled "Tour de Frank" which, as the name suggests, revolves around the competitive world of bicycle racing. Written by Andrea King and Andy Marx, the flick is a production of Shady Acres Entertainment and will be produced by Michael Bostick and Tom Shadyac with the latter having an eye to also direct.
Meanwhile, the second will be an untitled thriller movie set to be developed from Daniel Noah's script with Daniel Bobker and Ehren Kruger producing via their Bobker/Kruger. Details about the story are being kept under wraps, but it has been described by Noah that the project will be a blend of genre movie elements with a character-driven drama.
