Bob and Harvey Weinstein’s newly renamed TWC-Dimension will partner with Endgame Entertainment on the adult comedy Murder Mystery.
Anne Fletcher will direct from a script by James Vanderbilt about a struggling married couple on a last-chance cruise who must race to identity a killer.
Beau Flynn and Tripp Vinson will produce with Vanderbilt, Endgame Entertainment founder James D Stern and Charlize Theron through her Denver and Delilah Productions.
Endgame’s Doug Hansen, Tower Hill’s William Shively and Denver and Delilah’s Beth Kono and A J Dix will serve as executive producers.
TWC-Dimension was renamed to reflect a venture that will allow the Weinstein brothers to collaborate on projects where they share a passion. Other titles under discussion will be unveiled in the coming months.
”Murder Mystery is a throwback to Agatha Christie novels with a comedic spin,” the brothers said. “We have been huge fans of Anne Fletcher for years and have wanted to work with her. This film seems like the perfect project to team up with Anne, Endgame and Tripp.”
“James’s script is absolutely great,” said Stern. “It’s a modern version of the old Nick And Nora movies… it has it all - suspense, romance and humour.
“Bob and Harvey shared that sentiment and I am thrilled to partner with them again, and Anne is just the perfect director to bring this story to the screen.”
