Michael Eisner’s Tornante Developing Olympic Village Comedy (Exclusive)

4 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Michael Eisner’s Tornante Co. is making a splash in the feature film business, developing an Olympic Village comedy.

Tornante has hired the comedy writing team Jim and Brian Kehoe to pen an untitled internal comedy idea. The logline is being kept under wraps, but centers around the Olympic Village.

Eisner, who was the CEO of Disney for 17 years, founded Tornante in 2005 and acquired Topps baseball card publishers, Internet chore site TaskRabbit and made-for-Internet production shingle Vuguru.

Eisner signed a worldwide distribution deal in late 2012 with Universal, under which Uni agreed to put up the P&A for a certain amount of qualifying pictures, returning Eisner to the moviemaking business.

Netflix acquired Tornante’s animated comedy “Bojack Horseman,” with a voice cast including Will Arnett and Aaron Paul, late last year in the streamer’s first adult-oriented animated original.

The Kehoe Brothers sold their Black List script “Cherries” to Good Universe in 2012 with Seth Rogen, »

Disney is revving up the family action-comedy “The Wheelman,” bringing on the sibling writing team of Jim and Brian Kehoe to script.

Panay Film’s Andrew Panay, Adam Blum and Jared Iacino are producing. Panay’s credits include “Wedding Crashers” and “Hot Tub Time Machine 2.”

Night at the Museum” writers Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant wrote the original script, in which a Las Vegas limo driver is forced to drive around a mob boss’ bratty son and his friends. The driver gets in a little too deep when the mafioso goes missing.

Kristin Burr and Louie Provost are overseeing “The Wheelman” for the studio.

The Kehoe brothers recently sold action-comedy pitch “Top of the Food Chain” to Lionsgate and Tyler Perry’s 34th Street Films. China-based Dmg Entertainment (“Iron Man 3″) has come aboard as a producer to support an international release.
