Relativity puts corsage on 'Wedding'
Company options Jonathan Abrams' romantic comedyRelativity Media has optioned an original romantic-comedy screenplay from rookie scribe Jonathan Abrams titled "The Wedding Doctor."
Robert Kravis and Tyler Mitchell of Dark & Stormy Entertainment are producing with John Rogers, a writer on the USA Network series "Royal Pains."
"Doctor" follows an anxiety-wracked bride-to-be who gets cold feet three days before her wedding. She secretly hires a relationship analyst known as "The Wedding Doctor" to ensure she's marrying the right man. Self-interest takes over, though, when the wedding doctor determines that he, in fact, is her ideal man.
Kravis and Mitchell also have "Burt Wonderstone" in development at New Line and the Johnny Depp-Hunter S. Thompson adaptation "The Rum Diary" in postproduction.
Rogers, repped by CAA and Thruline Entertainment, co-wrote "The Core" and "Catwoman" and has a story credit on the first "Transformers" film.
Ryan Kavanaugh's Relativity recently co-financed "Land of the Lost" and "The Taking of Pelham 1 2 3." It also has "The Ugly Truth" and "Funny People" hitting theaters at month's end.
This is the first deal for Abrams, who is repped by Underground Films.
