According to Variety, DreamWorks has snapped up the Untitled Air Guitar project from writing team Ian Roberts and Jay Martel, with Steve Brill aboard to direct. Barry Josephson and his Josephson Entertainment are producing.
Broad comedy is expected to be a mix of several air guitar-themed works, including a docu about the cult-like world of air guitar competitions and an upcoming memoir by Dan Crane about his time onstage as a fictitious air guitar rocker. That book is due this year from Riverhead Press, while the docu is scheduled to unspoolunspool at the upcoming South by Southwest Festival.
The project drew strong interest from DreamWorks and New Line until the former took it off the market.
