MGM in ‘Love’ with pitch

Lion pays low six figures for wedding satire

MGM has acquired Margaret Heidenry’s romantic comedy pitch “Love and Marriage” for Dylan Sellers to produce.

The Lion paid low six figures for the satire in which an engaged couple ends up reversing roles as their wedding day quickly approaches.

MGM execs Elizabeth Cantillon and Erik Baiers will shepherd the project at the studio, while Jesse Ehrman will oversee the project for Sellers.

A graduate of AFI’s Directing Workshop for Women, Heidenry penned the comedy “No Place Like Home,” which Amy Heckerling is attached to direct and Vince Vaughn to star in at New Line. Neal Edelstein and Mike Macari are producing.

She has also previously sold the pitch “Amazing Jane” to Columbia.

Sellers, who produced the “Agent Cody Banks” franchise for MGM, is on a roll, recently setting up the comedy “Pool Guy” and an untitled poker laffer at the Lion in recent weeks. Sellers is also producing Warner Bros.’ Hilary Duff starrer “A Cinderella Story,” bowing in July.
