Revolution ‘Dates’ scribe duo

Dr. Seuss adaptation team to redo '80s laffer

Revolution Studios has tapped the writing team of Peter Seaman and Jeffrey Price (“The Cat in the Hat”) to pen the romantic comedy “Blind Date” for Lou Pitt to produce.

“Blind Date” will be a re-imagining of Tri-Star Pictures’ 1987 slapstick laffer of the same name which starred Bruce Willis and Kim Basinger about a yuppie workaholic’s blind date who gets drunk and goes out of control at an important company function.

Revolution is keeping specifics of the new pic’s plot under wraps.

Pitt, who brought the “Blind Date” redo to Revolution Studios partner Todd Garner, will produce. Columbia, which owns the rights to the original “Blind Date,” is also expected to come on board the project.

Pitt also produced this summer’s Harrison Ford and Josh Hartnett-starrer “Hollywood Homicide” for Revolution.

Duo penned ‘Cat’

Seaman and Price most recently penned Imagine Entertainment and Universal Pictures’ Dr. Seuss adaptations “The Cat in the Hat” and “How the Grinch Stole Christmas.” Their credits also include Disney’s “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” and Warner Bros.’ “Wild Wild West” and “Doc Hollywood.”

“Peter and Jeffrey are an incredibly creative team and have a fantastic take on this project,” Garner said. Revolution’s Garner and Denise Decker will oversee the project at the studio.
