New Regency at the altar

Principato, Young to produce 'Wedding'

HOLLYWOOD — New Regency has bought Dave H. Johnson’s pitch “Man Wedding” in a multi-studio auction in which bidding reached the mid-six figures.

Details on the pitch were being closely held, but it follows the “Wedding Crashers” template of combining nuptials with male-driven comedy.

Peter Principato and Paul Young are producing through their Principato-Young banner. The firm’s Allen Fischer exec produces, along with Melissa Hook, who came up with the original idea for the pitch.

“Man Wedding” is the third pitch the scribe has sold, following “Sweet Child of Mine” to Paramount and an untitled comedy at 20th Century Fox.

Shepherding at New Regency are exec VP Kara Francis and creative exec Heidi Sherman.
