Blumberg sells comedy pitch to New Line

Stuart Blumberg (“The Kids Are All Right”) has sold a comedy pitch to New Line with Scott Stuber (“Ted”) of Bluegrass Pictures and the Maven Pictures team of Celine Rattray and Trudie Styler on board to produce.

Blumberg was nominated for an Oscar for screenplay for “Kids” and made his directorial debut in “Thanks for Sharing,” starring Mark Ruffalo and Gwyneth Paltrow. Rattray was a producer on “Kids.”

Edward Norton and Bill Migliore of Class Five Films are executive producing. Richard Brener and Michael Disco will oversee for New Line.
