Chockstone gets in ring with ‘Tapped’

Film company picks up fighting comedy

Chockstone Entertainment is getting in the ring with tyro scribes James Sommers and Grace Church, picking up the fighting comedy “Tapped Out.”

Laffer revolves around an unemployed, down-on-his luck man whose life is turned upside down when he accidentally punches and knocks out an Ultimate Fighting champion and is challenged to one round in the league’s octagon-shaped ring.

Chockstone’s Steve and Paula Mae Schwartz will produce while Roger Schwartz, who brought the script into the shingle, will co-produce.

The Schwartzes are producers on “The Road,” through their Chockstone Pictures banner. Dimension is distribbing that pic in October.

They also are co-exec producers of Terrence Malick’s “Tree of Life” and have “Killer Instinct” based on Joseph Finder’s bestselling novel, in development with Barbara DeFina.
