Writing team driving script for 'Love Bug'

24 October 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Red-hot comedy writing duo Thomas Lennon and Robert Ben Garant have been tapped by the Walt Disney Co. to pen the redo of Herbie the Love Bug in a deal that comes close to the seven-figure mark, sources said. Robert Simonds is producing. The project has been in development at the studio for years, with various versions penned by such scribes as writing team Blake Snyder and Colby Carr as well as David Berenbaum. It is understood that the studio is scrapping all previous incarnations of the project to pick up the Lennon and Garant take, which puts Herbie in the world of NASCAR. Simonds will produce, with Tracey Trench -- production topper at the Robert Simonds Co. -- likely taking an executive producer credit. At the studio, it's being overseen by Nina Jacobson and Karen Glass. Simonds worked with the duo on Taxi, which they wrote and he is producing for 20th Century Fox. That project, lensing in Los Angeles, stars Queen Latifah and Jimmy Fallon for director Tim Story. »
