Newly minted Armory/Benderspinkweiner has tapped screenwriter Adam “Tex” Davis to pen its next feature project, “Seamus McSeamus.”
The comedy will follow a group of self-serving friends who thought they had the perfect “alibi guy” in the titular outcast. But when their wives suspect that Seamus’ “bachelor party in Cabo” was a ruse to justify a wild weekend get-away, the boys must double down on their hoax in order to save their marriages.
Move comes two months after the launch of the partnership to finance low-budget genre movies. Partnership is also developing “JTAC,” which follows a young joint terminal attack controller who teams with a small spec ops unit to hunt down a high value Al Qaeda target on the Pakistan-Afghanistan border.
Davis wrote “Just Friends” and is working on Comedy Central sitcom “The Shop,” based on his adventures working in his brother’s car wash factory in Hackensack, N.J., after being laid off from his Wall Street job.
Benderspink’s productions include “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone” and “We’re the Millers” at New Line and “The Hangover 3” at Warner Bros. Armory Films was founded in late 2011.
