QED International Takes ‘Winter Break’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Story follows trio of lifelong friends

In one of the last deals of 2013, Bill Block’s QED International is going on “Winter Break,” picking up Tripper Clancy’s buddy-comedy pitch.

Block (pictured above) and John Hegeman are producing for QED. Clancy is writing the script, expected to be R-rated.

The story follows three lifelong best friends, now seniors in college, as they head home for one final raging vacation: their last winter break ever. When one of the guys brings home his new girlfriend, it makes all of them question their friendship, their loyalty to the group and their respective future plans.

QED recently completed shooting on World War II tank tale “Fury,” starring Brad Pitt, and it announced last month that it had teamed with Worldview Entertainment to finance and produce the crime thriller “Term Life” — a few weeks after Universal Pictures had backed away from the project. Its slate includes Takashi Miike’s Tom Hardy topliner “The Outsider,” which is being produced and financed with Worldview.

Clancy’s road-trip comedy “Ambassadors” is set up at Fox with Danny Boon attached to direct. He’s repped by UTA and Benderspink.
