Renowned, prolific producer Scott Rudin gets a new project to take care of. Variety has reported that the New York native is teaming up with Craig Perry to produce family comedy "The Pet" for Walt Disney Pictures.
While stars and director have yet to be named, Matt Lieberman has already been hired to pen the script with Sheila Hanahan Taylor executive producing. Pic is likely to be Lieberman's feature writing debut as he recently penned upcoming "Dr. Dolittle 4" for Fox Home Entertainment.
Rudin, known for his award-winning films and Broadway plays, formed his own production company, Scott Rudin Productions, after taking up employment at Edgar J. Scherick Associates. Recent titles he produced included "Freedomland", "Failure to Launch", and "Notes on a Scandal."
