Tim Allen


Walt Disney Pictures has optioned a comedy pitch titled "Brothers" for Tim Allen to pen and possibly star in.

Good relationship between Walt Disney Pictures and Tim Allen appears to keep moving on well. Set to repeat the successes they both struck through last year's "The Santa Clause 3: The Escape Clause" and recently-released "Wild Hogs", the two are reportedly teaming up again for a new comedy titled simply "Brothers (2008)."

Variety said the funnyman has been attached to topline the project for the studio while also being set to pen its screenplay alongside Matt Carroll, who just sold the script for "Random Acts of Cruelty" to Columbia Pictures. Story is said to center on a racially mixed pair of adopted brothers who are framed for a crime and forced to team up.

Allen, former member of The Comedy Store, recently wrapped filming "Redbelt" for Sony Pictures Classics and signed on to play the titular character in indie comedy "The Six Wives of Henry Lefay." As for Disney, the company has just forged deals with Latin beauty Salma Hayek to produce a not-yet-titled romantic comedy that Hayek will star in as well.
