Nick Swardson wrote the script, with Fax Bahr, Adam Small and Kennedy rewriting. Mike Karz is producing with Bahr and Small.

A former season regular on “Ally McBeal,” Hall will next star in Dimension Films’ late summer release “Paid in Full.” She also had a leading role in “Scary Movie” and its sequel.
