Vendome Pictures doctors ‘Alive and Well’

Ken Kwapis directing romantic fantasy

Vendome Pictures is set to produce helmer Ken Kwapis’ romantic fantasy “Alive and Well,” from a script by David Hubbard.

Vendome is fully financing. CEO Philippe Rousselet will produce along with Kim Zubick, plus Kwapis and Alexandra Beattie via their In Cahoots banner. Story centers on a man, dead for nearly 25 years, who is given the chance to return to earth and reclaim his life.

Kwapis’ directing credits include “Big Miracle,” “He’s Just Not That Into You” and “The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants.” Hubbard’s writing credits include “Noel” as well as the upcoming “Will Sebastian.” CBS recently produced Hubbard’s one-hour pilot “The Widow Detective.”

Vendome’s Guy Stodel and Sarah Schweitzman will oversee the project.

In April, Vendome agreed to fully finance Anonymous Content-produced thriller “Bastille Day,” written by Andrew Baldwin, to be directed by Pierre Morel.

Kwapis is represented by UTA, Hubbard by WME. Both are managed by Code Entertainment.
