According to Variety, DreamWorks has nabbed Michael Besman's (About Schmidt) pitch for Wife vs. Ninja.

The film focuses on a Long Island housewife who comes to realize that the beautiful young intern who recently ran off with her scientist husband is in fact a bloodthirsty ninja assassin that wants to steal his work.

Besman is going to write the script with Michael Zam and Jaffe Cohen. Besman will also produce this film.

"We fell in love with the mix of action and laughs in (the story)," said DreamWorks co-president of production Holly Bario.
