Hyde Park Entertainment, Image Nation Abu Dhabi, and WWE Studios are to co-produce the comedy Untitled Celebrity Death Pool starring Ken Jeong. Hyde Park International handles sales outside the US.
The satire follows a debt-ridden nightclub owner who sets out to win his long-running celebrity death pool by attempting to kill his chosen celebrity, David Hasselhoff.
The cast includes WWE Hall Of Famer Hulk Hogan alongside Jeong and Hasselhoff.
Darren Grant will direct from a screenplay written by Peter Hoare. Pre-production is earmarked for September in Los Angeles and the parties have targeted a 2015 theatrical release.
WWE Studios president Michael Luisi and Hyde Park’s Ashok Amritraj are producing with Hasselhoff, Michele Berk, Patrick Hughes and Warren Zide. Eric Gardner is executive producer.
