Jeffrey D Erb and Joe Nicolo's Feverpitch Pictures has lined up the dark comedy Thicker to star Jason Lee and Christopher Lloyd.

Erb and Nicolo will produce with Leslie Zemeckis and Terry Nemeroff will direct Thicker, which the producers describe as a tale of 'lethal greed and even deadlier desire.'

Production is set to begin in May 2008 and the cast includes Leslie Zemeckis, Peter Facinelli and John Gries.

Erb and Nicolo launched Feverpitch after leaving Kindred Media in May and plan to make two to four films a year in the $1m-$5m range as well as one or two studio co-productions in the $20m-$50m range.
