David Duchovny and Tea Leoni's banner And Then Prods. is teaming with CBS Films to adapt for the bigscreen the comedy spec Born to Rock from writers Jess Walter and Mark Steilen.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the project revolves around a group of struggling, aging rock musicians who, because of a mixup in their demo tape, end up catching a record exec's attention for a children's song written on a lark, then find unlikely success as a Wiggles-type children's band.
Duchovny, who described the project as "rock 'n' roll meets the sippy cup crowd," said that the mix of older musicians playing youth-oriented music had relevance. "It speaks to a cultural phenomenon that is happening right now in music," he said.
And Then conceived and developed the script, signing on Steilen and Walter to write the screenplay.
No production date has been set.
