Pic was in turnaround from CBS Films
Scott Bernstein will oversee the project for Universal. The project was at CBS Films but was put into turnaround when the studio was unable to find the right director. Universal had been considering the project for some time but was also waiting to find the right director. WME-repped Jake Kasdan is also attached to direct Sony and Escape Artists’ “Sex Tape,” but may make “My Spy” his next film, as “Sex Tape” is still in development with casting still in discussion. Jon Kasdan is also repped by WME. Di Bonaventura is repped by CAA and Bloom, Hergott, Diemer, Rosenthal, LaViolette, Feldman, Schenkman & Goodman.
