Warner Bros. has optioned comedic pitch "For Richer or Poorer" from scribes Michael Colton and John Aboud to develop it into a film feature.
Becoming the victor of a bidding war, Warner Bros. Pictures has secured rights to make a comedy feature entitled "For Richer or Poorer" based on pitch from Michael Colton and John Aboud, Variety has reported.
Story focuses on a thief who teams up with her ex-boyfriend to stage a fake wedding at the Natural History Museum in New York as a cover for the perfect heist. On duty to take care of producing matters are Peter Principato and Paul Young of Principato Young Management.
Most recently penned "The Comebacks", which is going to hit theaters this October, duo Colton and Aboud have been known to have multiple writing stints together in their schedule. Among them are those for Ivan Reitman-directed "Over My Dead Body", New Line Cinema's "Mild Things", and "The Fix Up", another comedy coming from Warner Bros. Pictures.
