Universal acquires comedy script

Universal Pictures has acquired “TMI,” a comic vehicle for Ryan Reynolds and Anna Faris. Pic becomes one of the first purchases made by the new U regime of Adam Fogelson and Donna Langley.

Scripted by Kirsten “Kiwi” Smith and Marc Klein, the comic premise is that while honesty is the best policy for a relationship, “too much information” might not be the best thing.

Andrew Panay (“Old Dogs”) will produce with Jonathon Komack Martin, latter of whom partners with Reynolds in Dark Trick Films. Reynolds will be executive producer.

Fogelson and Langley were upped to the chairman and co-chair posts at U last month in a studio shakeup (Daily Variety, Oct. 6).

Reynolds, who is coming off “X-Men Origins: Wolverine” and “The Proposal,” next stars as the title character in the Martin Campbell-directed “Green Lantern.”

“TMI” is a possible candidate to follow that superhero effort.
