Cort engaged to ‘Wedding’

Production co. makes preemptive purchase of laffer

Robert Cort. Prods. has won the “Wedding Olympics,” making a preemptive purchase of the romantic comedy pitch from scribes Erica Rothschild and Bronwyn Garrity.

Tale’s based on the concept behind Garrity’s upcoming real-life wedding, during which the families of the bride and groom will compete in a variety of physical and mental games to determine which last name the couple will take. Garrity and Rothschild have been best friends since junior high school, and Garrity was Rothschild’s maid of honor last summer. Rothschild will be Garrity’s matron of honor at the upcoming wedding.

VP of production Scarlett Lacey brought the pitch to Cort, who has a first-look deal with Paramount.

Rothchild’s also penning “Trailblazer,” a teen adventure about an illegal cross-country horse race, for Cort. In addition, she’s rewriting “Style Council” for New Line and Karz Entertainment.

Garrity’s written for the Nation and penned several nonfiction titles for ReganBooks.
