Warner Bros. and De Line Pictures have bought the rights to the untitled pitch from Jody Hill; in fact, the two studios picked it up on the spot.

Hill made a splash at this year's Sundance Film Festival for his martial arts comedy, Footfist Way, his first film. Ever since then, he's been getting calls and meetings for new ideas, says Variety; CAA has been trying to get a distribution deal for Footfist Way.

No plot details are being released; Hill is writing the script and will direct the film which is still in the development stage.
