Duplass duo ink script deal

Co-helmers' 'Puffy' earned a Spirit Award nom

Universal-based producers Mary Parent and Scott Stuber have made a blind deal with Jay and Mark Duplass for a script the brothers will write with the intention of directing.

The duo previously helmed short films including “The Intervention” and comedy feature “The Puffy Chair,” which preemed at the Sundance Film Festival in 2005 and earned them an Independent Spirit Award nomination.

It opens in theaters Friday. “The Puffy Chair” was acquired by Netflix and Roadside Attractions.

Parent and Stuber, who just christened their company Stuber/Parent, open “The Break-Up”, which they produced with Vince Vaughn, this weekend. They follow with the Owen Wilson comedy “You, Me and Dupree,” which they produced with Wilson.

Stuber/Parent made the Duplass deal out of the development fund that is part of their overall Universal deal.
