Black, Uni team for 'Adventures'


Jack Black is hopping on board to star in and produce "The Lost Adventures of Stone Perlmutter Jr." for Universal Studios (HR 8/2).

The project hails from scribes Peter Huyck and Alex Gregory and comes on the heels of the duo setting up the comedy "Pros" at the studio.

"Lost Adventures" is described as a faux documentary made from recently "discovered" footage from 1979. The film follows the disastrous journey of a self-styled Indiana Jones-type adventurer who travels the world trying to find the Yeti, El Dorado, the lost tomb of Jesus and other great mysteries.
