Mark Poirier Gathering Russian Brides



"Smart People" scribe Mark Poirier has been appointed to write for Todd Phillips' untitled Russian brides project.

Taking his third writing stint, Mark Poirier has been assigned to pen the script of the untitled Russian brides project that Warner Bros. Pictures is still setting up at its pit, Variety has learned.

Adapted from David Benioff's 2002 article "Goodbye to Romance", the picture centers on a group of American guys who travel through Russia to search for brides. Names to direct and star have not yet been revealed, but it is confirmed that Todd Phillips will produce via his eponymous production company with Benioff.

With this appointment, Poirier thereby is taking over the duty from "Band of Brothers" scribe E. Max Frye who previously was tapped to write an early script for the project. Also hired to pen for "Hateship, Friendship, Courtship", Poirier encountered his writing debut in "Smart People", which has already been picked up by Miramax Films at this year's Sundance Film Festival.
