Sony has snapped up comedy pitch “Stranded,” with Kevin James to produce and star in the family comedy/action-adventure movie.
The studio is keeping the logline for Tripper Clancy’s pitch under wraps.
James developed the idea with Todd Garner, who will also produce with Sean Robins at their Broken Road banner. Jonathan Kadin will oversee the project for Sony.
James has a producing deal at Sony, which has set “Paul Blart: Mall Cop 2″ for a U.S. release on April 17, 2015. James returns as Blart.
Clancy sold buddy-comedy pitch “Winter Break” to Bill Block’s QED International, and his road-trip comedy “Ambassadors” is set up at Fox with Danny Boon attached to direct.
James is repped by WME and Jeff Sussman. Clancy is repped by UTA and Benderspink.
