Summit Entertainment has acquired Bear Aderhold and Tom Sullivan's broadly comic spec script Mental and has committed Mandalay Pictures to produce the feature, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Mental follows an orderly who is promised part of a $3 million inheritance from a mentally disturbed patient in his care -- but only if they can break out of an asylum and get to court to collect the loot. On the way from the Pasadena institution to Santa Monica, the seemingly stable patient begins to reveal personality disorders that make for a disastrous road trip.

Aderhold and Sullivan's feature credit is co-writing the Lionsgate Films comedy Delta Farce.
