Speaking of reteaming: Harry and Lloyd (aka Jim Carrey and Jeff Daniels) will match wits again in Dumb and Dumber To. Lionsgate dealing with White Girl Problems--what's not to like about that title? And Ditto on the comedy Sports Chick, co-written by Jason Reitman, and the Benderspink project A Guy's Guide to Being a Man's Man. Universal and Vinson Films will also produce a live-action remake of the Japanses anime film Vexile.
Other script sales include:
- Classic throwback alert: an adaptation of the children's classic Encyclopedia Brown. Warner Bros. and Vertigo Entertainment producing.
- Susan Cooper, written by Paul Feig (Bridesmaids), an action comedy putting a female in the James Bond role.
- Reboot: Tomb Raider.
- An adaptation of the Choose Your Own Adventure series. Although the only really extraordinary way to pull it off is if the audience chooses the direction of the movie. . . .

Just a few weeks left until the early deadline for the 2013 First Look Project, presented by Script Pipeline.
The unique contest intends to fulfill the current requests of studios and top-tier production companies by finding new, high-concept material that can be adapted for film or television among four categories: Feature Screenplay (4 genre divisions), Teleplay, and Adaptation.
With the support of Vinson Films, Green Hat Films, Lakeshore Entertainment, Vertigo Entertainment, Paradigm, and Benderspink, the goal of the competition is to present the best scripts and ideas to major companies. The winner in each category receives personal development assistance from Script Pipeline’s executive team, followed by meetings with producers to discuss potential production.
This is also an international competition, and writers worldwide are welcome to submit. Visit www.firstlookproject.com for details on each category of entry.
