THE FRIEND ZONE just hit the town yesterday and it’s already burrowing into some territories. Today we’ve received word that it’s into:
- Original into — Sony Pictures & Screen Gems
The spec revolves around a prototypical 20-something nice guy who gets stuck in a girl’s friend zone and decides–against his better instincts–to hire a foul-mouthed, eccentric pick-up artist to teach him how to get out of it. It sounds a bit like “Hitch” but decidedly more edgy.
Aaron Marshall wrote the comedy. His script “Fig Hunt: The Quest for Battle Armor Star Captain” put him on the 2011 Nicholl finalist list. He’s repped by Marc Manus (Manus Entertainment) and Dave Baird (Kinetic Management).
We’ll keep you updated as the spec makes more moves!
