Original pic is having its North American premiere at Slamdance

Jack Black’s Electric Dynamite has acquired the rights to exec produce and develop a remake of the British pic “Wizard’s Way.”

The original is having its North American premiere at this year’s Slamdance Film Festival and was written and directed by Joe Stretch, Socrates Adams-Florou and Chris Killen.

WME Global is handling domestic sales.

Black will serve as an exec producer and also help develop the property along with Electric Dynamite’s Priyanka Mattoo.

The original story follows the lives of Barry Tubbulb and Julian ‘Windows’ Andrews, who spend their time playing an ageing online fantasy video game called “Wizard’s Way.”

Black, Electric Dynamite, Stretch, Adams and Killen are repped by WME.
