The Break-Up writer Jeremy Garelick wrote the script and will make his directorial debut. The project, which is partially based on events from Jeremy Garelick's life, centers on two best friends whose lives are turned upside down when one man's son impregnates the other's daughter.
Columbia Pictures originally optioned the script in 2009, with Universal now looking to pick the project out of turnaround. Neal H. Moritz is attached to produce.
No production schedule was revealed for The Insane Laws.
