Will Ferrell-Produced Threesome Comedy Project Picked Up by Universal

 

Universal has come out on top for an untitled comedy project being produced by Will Ferrell and his Gary Sanchez cohorts Adam McKay, Kevin Messick and Chris Henchy.

Leah Rachel is behind the pitch and will write the script. Details are being kept under wraps, but the project is centered around the high jinks that ensue before and after a threesome make a connection. It is intended to be a broad comedy with heart and a three-hander.

Universal senior vp of production Erik Baiers will oversee the project for the studio, which beat out Lionsgate to acquire the pitch.

Rachel has been quickly making a name for herself in the comedy field. The 26-year-old sometime actress this year sold The Young, the Hot and the Bothered to Mandate, with Dan Jinks producing, and has sold projects to HBO and ABC.

She is repped by WME, Anonymous Content and Bloom Hergott.
