According to The Hollywood Reporter, "Punk'd" stars Dax Shepard and Al Shearer have graduated from their prankster ways on Ashton Kutcher's MTV series to get in business with Fox Searchlight Pictures.
The duo have set up an untitled pitch at the studio specialty division based on their own idea, sources confirmed. It will see them star as two guys from different racial backgrounds who come to find out that they are actually brothers who must compete against each other for an inheritance.
Searchlight is looking for a scribe to pen the feature. The project falls in line with a slate of other specialty comedies at Searchlight, including the upcoming Johnson Family Vacation, the Johnny Knoxville starrer The Ringer and Broken Lizard's Club Dread.
