Point Grey Pictures and Good Universe are developing the comedy Good Boys written by Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, who will also be making their feature directorial debut.
Described as in the vein of Sausage Party and Superbad, Good Boys is an R-rated comedy about four 12-year-olds caught between childhood innocence and lewd teenage corruption, who embark on an epic quest from Tarzana to the Sherman Oaks Galleria to replace a broken drone before their parents get home.
Point Grey's Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and James Weaver will produce, while Good Universe’s Nathan Kahane and Joe Drake will executive produce. Josh Fagen is overseeing for Point Grey and Brady Fujikawa for Good Universe.
Eisenberg & Stupnitsky co-created the HBO series Hello Ladies with Stephen Merchant. They both won the 2007 WGA Comedy Series award for The Office. They also wrote Bad Teacher starring Cameron Diaz, which grossed more than $216 million in worldwide box office for Sony.
Eisenberg and Stupnitsky are represented WME, Mosaic and Sloane Offer. Point Grey is represented by UTA and Felker Toczek. Dan Freedman of Good Universe negotiated deals on behalf of the producers.
