'Crazy/Beautiful' pair to helm Hayland-Margolis pic

Lisa Hayland and Katherine Margolis’ Hayland-Margolis Films has struck a deal with scribe duo Matt Manfredi and Phil Hay to co-direct comedy “Bug.”

Penned by Manfredi, “Bug” is the duo’s feature directing debut. They previously penned Touchstone Pictures’ “Crazy/Beautiful,” starring Kirsten Dunst.

“Bug” centers on a loosely interconnected group of people who each affect everyone around them in surprising ways.

Pic stars Jamie Kennedy (“Boiler Room”), Brian Cox, Ed Begley Jr., Sarah Paulson (“What Women Want”), John Carroll Lynch (“Gone in Sixty Seconds”) and Michael Hitchcock (“Happy, Texas”).

Hayword and Margolis are producing with Brian Gerber. David Edington will exec produce, with Nicole Shay LaLoggia line producing.

“Bug” is the second production this year for Hayland-Margolis; first was “Par 6,” now in post-production. That pic stars Misha Collins, Jeffrey Jones and John Carroll Lynch.
