Jay Chandrasekhar to helm 'Opposites'

12 January 2009 6:00 PM, PST | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Jay Chandrasekhar of Broken Lizard fame has signed on to direct "Opposites Attract," a comedy from Bold Films.

Written by Dan Ewen, "Opposites" is a body-switching comedy involving a young couple who must "walk a mile in each other's shoes" in order to make their relationship work.

Bold and Chandrasekhar are aiming to do an R-rated take on the body-switching genre while looking at the differences between the sexes.

Although Chandrasekhar helmed such Broken Lizard films as "Super Troopers" and "Beerfest" and tends to work with his comedy troupe, "Opposites" is not a Broken Lizard production.

Bold's Michel Litvak and David Lancaster are producing with Elements Entertainment's Chad Marting and Christopher Pratt. Gary Michael Walters is executive producing, with Garrick Dion co-producing.

The company's Stephanie Denton is handling domestic and international sales.

Bold is in production on Joe Dante's supernatural thriller "The Hole" with Haley Bennett and Teri Polo »
