Producers develop ‘Pictures’

Permut teams with Gross, Shapiro on teen comedy

David Permut (“Youth in Revolt”) is teaming with Dave Gross and Jesse Shapira to produce the romantic teen comedy “Pictures of You,” penned by Joshua Friedlander.

Story, set in a Florida resort town, centers on a teenage boy who finds a lost camera on the beach. After developing the film, he ends up on a quest to find the girl of his dreams, whose picture was discovered inside the camera.

Permut Presentations will produce with Gross & Shapira’s No Trace Camping and Permut VP Steve Longi will co-produce. Permut’s looking to attach a director next.

“Pictures of You” was on the 2007 Black List of top unproduced screenplays. Friedlander recently sold his spec script “One Night Stan” to Lionsgate.

Dimension will release “Youth in Revolt,” starring Michael Cera, Zach Galifianakis and Justin Long, on Jan. 8. Permut’s other projects include the John De Lorean Story, “A Life in the Day” by Tony Gittelson about Beatles’ manager Brian Epstein and the recently announced “Chippendales” with Tony Scott directing and producing.

Gross and Shapira start production on the hockey comedy “Goon” by Jay Baruchel and Evan Goldberg in April.
