Universal in Talks to Pick Up 'He's F---in' Perfect' From Fox 2000
The script is by Lauryn Kahn, a former assistant to director Adam McKay, who is attached to produce with his Gary Sanchez Productions partner Will Ferrell.
Universal Pictures is in negotiations to pick He’s F---in’ Perfect out of turnaround from Fox 2000.
The comedy package has a script by Lauryn Kahn, a former assistant to director Adam McKay at Gary Sanchez Productions, the banner run by McKay and Will Ferrell. The duo is attached to produce.
Jake Szymanski, who has helmed many Funny or Die skits, is attached to direct.
Perfect is the story of one woman, pessimistic in love, who regularly uses the Internet to research the men her friends are dating, acting as a vetting device for them to weed out losers. Things take a turn when she gets a friend to dump a new guy in order to steal the man for herself, using her social media savvy to turn herself into his perfect match.
Fox 2000 initially picked up the script in a $1 million deal in late 2011. Emma Stone had been circling the project at the time but is not currently involved.
Kahn is represented by WME.
Szymanski is repped by CAA and Mosaic.
