Will Reiser teams up with longtime collaborators Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and Jonathan Levine to develop the comedy feature.
Reiser brought in the project to Mandate and is basing the story on a vacation he took to the Caribbean island as a 14-year-old with his grandmother.
Just as they did on the upcoming Summit release 50/50, Reiser will write the screenplay and Levine is attached to direct.
Rogen and Evan Goldberg will produce through their Point Grey Pictures production label. Reiser, Point Grey’s James Weaver and Mandate’s Nathan Kahane and Nicole Brown will serve as executive producers.
“We feel privileged to have another opportunity to partner with all of these super talented guys on this hilarious idea,” Kahane said. “Will is an exceptional writer with so many amusing life experiences to pull from and he has a unique instinct to bring out tender moments in comical situations.”
50/50 is scheduled to open in the US through Summit on Sept 30.
