College comedy penned by waiter-turned-scribe

Twentieth Century Fox has given life to “Ghost of 21,” buying the comedy spec script from tyro writer Blake McCormick for low against mid-six figures for Davis Entertainment to produce.

Project, in the vein of “Old School,” concerns a 30-year-old pillar of the community who’s on the verge of being married. His world is turned upside down when his old college buddies reappear to hold him to a promise he made not to get hitched.

McCormick had been working as a waiter at a Los Angeles-area restaurant prior to the script sale. Director of production Steve Asbell brought the project into the studio.
