Columbia Pictures has picked up the action-comedy spec script Babe in the Woods, from School of Rock scribe Mike White.

According to Variety, White will produce through his Rip Cord Prods. banner with David Bernad. He'll do a polish on the script before it goes out to directors and cast.

The script is about a female freshman from the Midwest who arrives at Yale and becomes a target of the New Jersey mob.

No production date has been set.
