Seemingly enthusiastic to gear up development on its "Laws of Motion", Plum Pictures has hired both Craig Lucas and Elyse Friedman to assume helming and writing duties on the project, respectively.
Already had Matthew Perry, Hilary Swank plus Justin Long in the cast, the comedy focuses on an uptight professor, played by Perry, who has to struggle with a repressive career and community, as well as headaches caused by his free-spirited brother and sister. Swank, in the meantime, is filling in a supporting role of his perfectionist neighbor.
Production is set to start this July in Connecticut for a planned fall 2008 release. Swank reportedly will also produce via her eponymous production company alongside Daniela Taplin, Celine Rattray, Jana Edelbaum, Eden Wurmfield, and Galt Niederhoffer.
