Danny DeVito to direct ‘Honeymoon’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Tapestry, Reel FX will produce the indie comedy

Danny DeVito is going on a honeymoon, as the “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” star is attached to direct the indie comedy “Honeymoon With Dad” for Tapestry Films and Reel FX Creative Studios.

Written by Scott Atkinson and Tegan West, script follows a CPA who is dumped at the altar and forced to spend what would have been his honeymoon with his estranged, larger-than-life father.

Michael Schreiber and Peter Abrams will produce for Tapestry, while Cary Granat and Jared Mass will produce for Reel FX.

There’s no start date in place yet, but DeVito is expected to helm the film next year while on hiatus from “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia,” with several windows of availability presenting themselves between next winter and fall.

DeVito made his feature directing debut with the 1987 comedy “Throw Momma From the Train,” in which he starred opposite Billy Crystal. He went on to helm “The War of the Roses” and “Hoffa” before briefly turning his attention to lighter fare such as “Matilda,” after which he directed the dark comedies “Death to Smoochy” and “Duplex.” DeVito has the indie thriller “St. Sebastian,” starring William Fichtner and Lance Reddick, in the can and awaiting release.

Outside the director’s chair, DeVito recently voiced the title role in Universal and Illumination’s “The Lorax,” and on the producing side, his Jersey Films banner is prepping Scott Frank’s thriller “A Walk Among the Tombstones,” with Liam Neeson set to star.

DeVito is repped by CAA and Behr & Abramson.

Atkinson and West previously co-wrote the Participant Media comedy “Minimum Wage,” which helmer Mark Waters had been circling since back in 2009. Scribes are repped by Paradigm and Anonymous Content.
