Black joins Universal’s ‘Adventures’

Universal has acquired the pitch “The Lost Adventures of Stone Perlmutter Jr.,” with Peter Huyck and Alex Gregory to write the script as a star vehicle for Jack Black. Black and partner Ben Cooley will produce through their Universal-based Electric Dynamite Prods. label. Project is conceived as a faux documentary made from recently “discovered” footage from 1979, chronicling the disastrous journey of a self-styled Indiana Jones-like adventurer who traveled the globe in search of such elusive targets as Yeti, El Dorado and the lost tomb of Jesus.
