Dimension Films has announced that they have acquired the rights to develop and produce Runt, a high concept comedic pitch by Walt Becker (Wild Hogs and National Lampoon's Van Wilder) and David Gallagher. The screenplay will be co- written by Becker and Gallagher. Becker will also direct and executive produce the feature, with David Hoberman and Todd Lieberman producing through their production company Mandeville Films.
Runt is a high concept comedy about twin brothers who are complete opposites.
Bob Weinstein stated, "I am very excited about being in business with Walt and think he is incredibly talented and has a long and successful career ahead of him. His vision for Runt is absolutely hilarious." "I'm very excited to be working with Bob Weinstein and everyone at Dimension," said Becker. "I've long respected their passion for film and their support of filmmakers."
Richard Saperstein, president of production, and Matthew Stein, senior vice president of production, will oversee the project on behalf of Dimension Films.
