According to The Hollywood Reporter, Columbia Pictures is tapping Mark Perez to pen an untitled family comedy that Diane Keaton is attached to star in and produce.

Columbia, which is still in negotiations on the deal, is keeping the logline tightly under wraps, but, according to sources, the project grew out of a conversation on the night of the Academy Awards between Keaton and Amy Pascal, chairman of the Motion Picture Group at Sony Pictures Entertainment.
