Universal Lauds "The Remarkable Fellows"



Universal Pictures is making action buddy comedy "The Remarkable Fellows" with Joe Carnahan writing to direct and Jason Bateman toplining.

On the move to make a high-concept comedy, Universal Pictures is developing an action buddy comedy entitled "The Remarkable Fellows" following its successful attempt to secure the film rights from acclaimed filmmaker Joe Carnahan.

Carnahan previously worked on an outline of the project with actor Jason Bateman, who hatched its premise and later hooked the studio. Here the Sacramento native reportedly will write to direct as well as produce alongside Richard Gladstein and the thesp, who is also set to be the flick's leadstar.

Meanwhile, story follows two brothers as they take over the family business, which involves exacting revenge for clients. The duo, who are "part James Bond and part Ricky Jay," get assignments "from their father and carry them out all over the world," Bateman revealed.

"The revenge scenario is dependent on the intricacy of the plot. If the president of a major bank was sleeping with the French ambassador's wife, the banker would call these guys," he added.
