Saturday Night Live impresario Lorne Michaels is attached to produce via his Broadway Video production banner.
Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the project is described as a high-concept road comedy.
The project will reunite Pearlman with Michaels, who produced Staten Island Summer, a coming-of-age comedy in which the actor starred with Graham Phillips. Pearlman also co-starred in the Michaels-produced TV series Mulaney.
The idea for the movie sprang from a meeting Pearlman had with execs at Broadway. Talk of future acting work got sidetracked when it turned into a brainstorming session, leading to what is Pearlman’s first script sale.
Pearlman is repped by UTA, Principato-Young Entertainment and Stone Meyer.
