Universal Pictures has acquired Little Lover Boy, according to Variety.

The Rick Overton-written comedy is about a small-time crook who gets abducted by aliens, swipes their spaceship and teams with an alien pilot for a Robin Hood-inspired intergalactic road trip.

Overton is a standup comic and Emmy-winning writer for The Dennis Miller Show and an actor last seen on Lost.

Overton showed the script to Miller, a longtime acquaintance, and Miller plugged the script to the producers.
