Brendan Fraser set for ‘Vengeance’

Roger Kumble to direct family comedy

Brendan Fraser will star in and Roger Kumble will direct “Furry Vengeance,” a live-action family comedy that will start production by early summer.

Fraser will play a real estate developer whose new housing subdivision pushes far into a pristine part of the Oregon wilderness, pitting the developer against a band of angry critters.

Summit Entertainment and Participant Media are co-financing and co-producing the movie, marking their first collaboration since announcing a multipic distribution deal last week.

Robert Simonds will produce with Keith Goldberg. Script was penned by Michael Carnes and Josh Gilbert, who wrote “Mr. Woodcock” together.

Kumble most recently directed the comedies “College Road Trip” and “Just Friends.”

Summit is readying “Twilight” sequel “New Moon,” while Participant is teaming with Overture on “The Crazies,” a remake of the George Romero film that starts shooting in March.
