According to The Hollywood Reporter, Sahara scribes Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer have been tapped to rewrite the comedy-actioner Skip Tracer for Columbia Pictures.

The story centers on a man who inadvertently kidnaps a young girl embroiled in a custody battle when he repossesses a yacht. Scribe Steve Franks (Big Daddy) penned an earlier draft. Neal Moritz is producing through his Original Films banner alongside Brad Luff and Chris Henze. Sony's Jonathan Kadin is shepherding the project for the studio.
