It's a 'Repeat' for Universal

Company nabs comedy pitch from Dave H. Johnson

Universal has picked up "Repeat After Me," a comedy pitch from Dave H. Johnson, for Scott Stuber to produce.

"Repeat" revolves around a couple who realize that they are reliving their disastrous wedding day again and again and start to question getting married in the first place.

The project was picked up preemptively, and the deal was in the mid-six against seven figures.

Richard Solomon and Alexa Faigen brought the project into Stuber Prods.

Johnson, a writer on "Jake 2.0," previously sold "Man Wedding" to New Regency; Principato-Young Entertainment is producing. He also has "Big Man on Campus" at Fox and "Sweet Child of Mine" at Paramount.

Johnson, who is a teacher at UCLA's Film School, is repped by ICM and Principato-Young.

Scott Bernstein oversees for Universal.
