Universal is set for some outrageous nuptial comedy with their new project. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the studio is in final negotiations to purchase Richard Rapoza's outlandish comedy, Best Man-a-thon.
The story revolves around a man about to be married who encounters trouble when his boyhood best friend and collegiate best friend hate each other and both want to be the best man at his wedding. When both refuse to share the title, they decide to compete for the prized position, in wedding-related events.
"My dad was a best man five times for guys who all considered him their best friend, and they all expected him to return the favor," said Rapoza, who developed the screenplay at a UCLA MFA workshop he still attends.
Rapoza won $4,000 at the Samuel L. Goldwyn Writing Awards earlier this month. When he was asked if he had other scripts, he mentioned this idea, which was quickly pitched around town.
No production schedule was announced for the project.
