Fox Searchlight has acquired a comedy pitch titled Motherf***er from actor/writer/director Daryl Wein , who you might remember from the indie Breaking Upwards (which we have profiled on the site in the past). According to Deadline, the film will be scripted by Wein and screenwriting partner/actor Zoe Lister-Jones (Breaking Upwards) and is about:
“a guy who falls in love with a girl. When she brings him home to meet her parents, he falls for his girlfriend’s mom.”
Sounds like it may have the potential to be the indie/politically incorrect version of Meet the Parents. And things seem to be “breaking upwards” for Lister-Jones and Wein, as we learned earlier this week that Searchlight is also in talks to acquire the duo’ other screenplay Lola Versus, with Anne Hathaway possibly attached to star.
