Fox gets ‘Ghost’ writers

Rouse, Leggett to script '21'

Twentieth Century Fox has tapped the screenwriting team of Mitch Rouse and Jay Leggett (“Without a Paddle”) to pen “Ghost of 21,” set up at Davis Entertainment.

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

Fox launched the project a year ago when it acquired Blake McCormick’s spec script (Daily Variety, May 17, 2004). Wyck Godfrey is overseeing for Davis; production VP Steve Asbell is shepherding for the studio.

Rouse was a co-creator of Comedy Central’s “Strangers With Candy,” and Leggett was a cast member on Fox’s “In Living Color.” Both were members of the Second City comedy troupe in Chicago.
