Screen Gems has picked up Robert Moniot's upcoming comedy spoof Armageddagain: The Day Before Tomorrow.

Production is scheduled to begin in August and Screen Gems will release in 2008. Screen Gems' Michael Helfand negotiated the deal with Moniot's agents at ICM.

Noah Emmerich makes his major producing debut through Sandbox Entertainment, alongside Moniot and his Big Picture Entertainment and Phil Goldfine of Hollywood Media Bridge.

Odd Lot International will commence foreign sales in Cannes on the project, which Moniot and Travis Oates co-wrote and takes a comedic swipe at big-budget disaster films like Armageddon, Independence Day and The Day After Tomorrow, as well as upcoming summer releases Transformers and The Bourne Ultimatum.

'Armageddagain is terrific project with a very clever and funny script,' Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper said. 'We are thrilled to be in the comedy business with Rob and Travis.'

'We are excited to bring Armageddagain: The Day Before Tomorrow to the international marketplace,' Odd Lot International's executive vice president of worldwide distribution Brian O'Shea said.

'We expect a great response from the international buyers as the film's humour is something that will have audiences roaring with laughter.'

Odd Lot International's Cannes sales slate includes Frank Miller's The Spirit, Suburban Girl, The Horror Chronicles (Living Hell, Buried Alive, Undead Or Alive: A Zombedy), Sense And Sensibilidad and Ira & Abby.

Moniot is also represented by Lindsay Williams at Gotham Group.
