David Spade gets ‘Divorced’

Fred Wolf to write, direct Wind Dancer comedy

“House Bunny” helmer Fred Wolf will write and direct “Divorced Guys” for Wind Dancer Films. David Spade will star.

Wolf, Spade and Kevin Farley wrote the story about a group of divorced guys who go on a road trip to figure out why their marriages failed and stumble into a series of comic mishaps.

Wind Dancer’s Matt Williams and Judd Payne will produce. Wind Dancer bought the project with its inhouse development fund, and the company will finance production as well.

Bill Papariella will exec produce, and Apryl Prose and Farley will be co-producers.

Wolf has a long history with Spade. He wrote “Tommy Boy,” Spade’s breakout pairing with Chris Farley, and Wolf and Spade co-wrote “Joe Dirt” and “Dickie Roberts: Former Child Star” and recently finished “Mad Families,” poised to be a Spade-Chris Rock teaming at Sony.
