Laffer based on pitch by SNL producer Shiraki

Revolution Studios has tapped “The Full Monty” scribe Simon Beaufoy to pen comedy “In the Pink,” which Tim Allen is set to topline.

Based on a pitch by former “Saturday Night Live” producer Ryan Shiraki, laffer revolves around a man who teams with a group of women to sell cosmetics door-to-door after he loses his cushy corporate job.

Zadan, Meron on board

Pic is being readied to start shooting early next year. “Chicago” producers and Storyline Entertainment partners Craig Zadan and Neil Meron are shepherding the project with producer Dan Halsted (“S.W.A.T.,” “Beyond Borders”).

No director has yet been hired.

Revolution’s Suzanne Todd will oversee the project for the studio.

“In the Pink” will be Beaufoy’s first major studio project after years in the indie arena.

He most recently penned the $500,000 digital thriller “This Is Not a Love Song,” which the U.K. Film Council distribbed in a handful of theaters and on the Internet in September.

Before that, Beaufoy wrote Miramax’s hairdressing comedy “Blow Dry,” starring Josh Hartnett and Alan Rickman, and penned and co-directed arthouse pic “The Darkest Light.”

“The Full Monty” was a runaway hit for Fox Searchlight in 1997, earning an unexpected $46 million.
