Producers are Mason Novick (“Red Eye”) and Malkovich’s producing partners at Mr. Mudd, Lianne Halfon and Russell Smith. Mandate’s Joe Drake and Nathan Kahane are exec producing with Dan Dubiecki, Reitman’s producing partner at Hard C. Jim Miller, who brought the project into Mandate, will co-produce.

Reitman (“Thank You for Smoking”) boarded the project this summer, replacing Brad Silberling, who bowed out due to creative differences over casting.

Cera was a regular in the Fox series “Arrested Development.” He next stars in Sony’s upcoming “Super Bowl.”
