Universal Pictures is set to develop sports comedy "Pros" for Mary Parent and Scott Stuber to both produce.
Another day, another project from Universal Pictures. The giant film company is now being reported to have put a new sports comedy titled "Pros" into its future movie slate following its plan to make "Shinobi" alongside Circle of Confusion and Spitfire Pictures.
Story takes shape after a fire incident destroys a local YMCA's tennis court, leading the kids to ask a favor of a local country club to allow them playing on its courts for the summer. This, however, ignites a rivalry between a hardworking blue-collar YMCA pro and a blue-blooded playboy country club pro.
On duty to produce are Mary Parent and Scott Stuber who will carry out the task via their Stuber/Parent shingle with Dylan Clark overseeing for Universal. Meanwhile, pic will be developed based on original script penned by Peter Huyck and Alex Gregory.
"We're fascinated by country club tennis pros," Huyck remarked. "There's something magnificent about their louche yet shabby lifestyle. They're both sexy and sad."
