Sony Pictures spelunking in 'Man Cave'

Comedy script centers on man going through midlife crisis

Sony Pictures has purchased the original comedy screenplay "Danny Graves' Man Cave," written by Jacob Isser and Paul Lutz.

Joe Roth, who most recently produced "Hellboy II: The Golden Army," will produce through his Roth Films banner.

The story line follows a suburban husband and father going through a midlife crisis who discovers a mysterious man-cave in his basement. The fantasy world provides his version of the perfect life, which ultimately gets called into question.

Isser and Lutz, who are repped by Brillstein Entertainment Partners, also have their teen comedy script "Park Narcs" set up at Intrepid Pictures.
