Schaffer, Joe rewrite ‘Loco’

Pic first penned by Altier brothers with Weston Almond

Screenwriting duo Greg Schaffer and Steve Joe have been hired by Warner Bros. Pictures to rewrite the comedy “Victory & Loco” for Denise Di Novi Pictures.

Comedy concerns a pair of guys who begin to think they are a team of 1970s cops after watching too many reruns.

Originally titled “The Meddlers,” pic was first penned by brothers Daniel and Steven Altier with Weston Almond. Title was changed to prevent confusion with another project, “Meddlers,” which is being produced at Bonnie Bruckheimer and Bette Midler’s All Girl Prods.

Warners execs Jeff Robinov and Dan Lin are overseeing the project for the studio. Alison Greenspan is the executive at Di Novi.

Schaffer and Joe most recently rewrote the Orlando Jones vehicle “Reverend Pimp Daddy” for producers Chris Lee and Stephanie Elaine at Columbia Pictures. Previously, they wrote for television series, including “Mad About You.”
