Warner Bros. has picked up the pitch, which hails from scribes Pamela Falk and Michael Ellis. Adam Shankman and Jennifer Gibgot of Offspring Entertainment are producing.
Bullock is attached to star, while Fletcher will direct.
Details are scarce, but the contemporary-set project is described as in the vein of the 1978 Paul Mazursky film An Unmarried Woman and Saturday Night Fever.
Bullock also will executive produce with her Fortis Films partner Maggie Biggar. Offspring’s Matt Smith also is executive producing. Sarah Schechter is overseeing for Warners.
Warners is bullish on CAA-repped Bullock; the acquisition comes as Bullock is in negotiations to star in the studio’s outer space survival movie, Gravity, from director Alfonso Cuaron. Gravity is vying with Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close as her next movie.
Choreographer-turned-director Fletcher, repped by UTA, is now developing Most Wanted, which sees her working not only with Bullock but also her Proposal co-star, Ryan Reynolds.
Offspring was behind three films this year, including The Last Song, Step Up 3D and Going the Distance.
Falk and Ellis, repped by WME and Anonymous Content, are best known for penning the 2001 romantic comedy The Wedding Planner, which starred Matthew McConaughey and Jennifer Lopez.
