New Line mans ‘Homefront’

Moritz, Luff to produce 'Mr. Mom'-like military pic

Befitting a time when numerous military dads are deployed in far-flung lands like Afghanistan, Kuwait and Iraq, New Line Cinema has picked up the comedy pitch “On the Homefront” from scribes Analisa Labianco and Tempest Edwards.

Sort of a post-9/11 “Mr. Mom,” “Homefront” centers on a special-forces commando who finds himself on the toughest mission of his military career: After mouthing off to his female C.O. about how women have it easy at home, he’s kept out of the action as an on-base family liaison, navigating the minefields of his buddies’ wives, unruly kids and neglected chores. Sony-based Neal Moritz and Brad Luff of Original Film (“2 Fast 2 Furious”) are producing the pic, which will be overseen by New Line senior VP of production Stokely Chaffin in Los Angeles and VP Renee Witt in Gotham, along with assistant story editor Jeff Katz in L.A.

Repped by Genesis and Anonymous, pair wrote the comedy “Sex Talk,” also for New Line, which is scheduled for a fall start with Team Todd producing.
