Warner Bros. nabs 'Treehouse'
EmptyWarner Bros. has won the bidding war for "Treehouse Gang," a spec by Timothy Dowling. The studio acquired it for David Heyman's Heyday Films.
The story revolves around a group of kids -- four boys and two girls -- who were treasure hunters in their youth. After their 10-year high school reunion, they gather for one last grand treasure hunt a la "The Goonies," while bearing old grudges.
Heyday's Tiffany Daniel and Abby Ex brought the project into the company.
Sarah Schechter and Jesse Ehrman are overseeing for Warners.
Heyman is best known for producing the "Harry Potter" movies.
Dowling, one of the people behind the spoof short "George Lucas in Love," penned "She's Out of My League," which is in production at DreamWorks with Jay Baruchel in the lead.
He also worked on "What Happens in Vegas ..." with Ashton Kutcher and Cameron Diaz.
He is repped by Endeavor and attorney Rick Genow.
