Craig Mazin co-wrote the script with Phillips, who is producing with Daniel Goldberg. Legendary’s Thomas Tull exec produces with Scott Budnick. Production is under way; WB plans to release the pic on May 24.

Loren will soon be seen alongside Dwayne Johnson and Jon Bernthal in Ric Roman Waugh’s “Snitch.” In addition to guest spots on a TV shows including “Lost” and “The Shield,” she previously appeared in Mike Binder’s “Reign Over Me” with Don Cheadle.

Loren is repped by SDB Partners and Inspire Entertainment.
