The Hollywood Reporter today reports that Malibu's Most Wanted producer Mike Karz and his Karz Entertainment production banner have signed-on at New Line. Karz is already working on an untitled Jennifer Aniston project and a romantic comedy Good Luck Chuck, and is now attached to produce Lucky, about a movie-star dog, and Maggie, about a slacker who turns his life around.

New Line's goal with the deal is to produce more films similar to Elf and Secondhand Lions.
