Walt Becker to produce ‘No Relation’

Fox Searchlight nabs duo's spec comedy

Fox Searchlight has scooped up Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber’s spec “No Relation” for Walt Becker to produce.

Comedy centers on a thirtysomething accountant who agrees to be the best man at his estranged, free-wheeling father’s latest wedding, hoping to repair their relationship.

Jennifer Eatz, Aaron Kaplan and Sean Perrone are also producing.

Searchlight was eager to get back into business with the writing duo, who recently penned “500 Days of Summer” for the specialty label. That film recently wrapped production.

Neustadter and Weber’s credits also include the upcoming “Pink Panther” sequel. They recently sold a pair of specs: “Underage” to Montecito Pictures and “Who’s Your Daddy” to Universal Pictures, with Scott Stuber producing.
