“Project X” producer Todd Phillips is also producing Bacall’s original script “Psycho Funky Chimp,” about two obsessive collectors of rare Pez dispensers.

Scribe is currently adapting Neal Bascomb’s novel “The New Cool” for producer Scott Rudin, having recently adapted Richard Aleas’ pitch-black detective tale “Little Girl Lost” for Marc Platt Prods. at Universal. Bacall is also working with Red Hour Prods. to develop a comedy about Tom Cruise’s “Tropic Thunder” character Les Grossman for Paramount.

Bacall continues to be repped by attorney Jeff Shumway of Timaeus Group.
