Universal Flourishes New Pic Renaissance Men


Universal Pictures is making a new comedy titled "Renaissance Men" which Rainn Wilson is co-writing for him to also topline and produce.

Forming a good pact with "The Office" star Rainn Wilson, Universal Pictures in on the way to develop a new comedy feature based on the script the funnyman is co-writing alongside fellow actor Matt Ross entitled "Renaissance Men", The Hollywood Reporter has learned.

Project focuses on two down-and-out community theater actors who think they have accidentally killed a co-star and, in a panic, go on the lam and hide out in a Renaissance fair. Wilson is said to also set to topline as well as to produce with Jay Roach, known for his directing works in "Austin Powers" series.

"(Renaissance fairs) are fascinating," Wilson commented. "Everyone has been to one, but no one really knows what makes them tick. The great thing about them is how seriously people take their duties at the fair or as their characters, whether they are doing swordfights or selling giant turkey legs. And I think that the best comedy comes from people taking ridiculous circumstances extremely seriously."
