Lionsgate Developing ‘Epic Fail’ Film for Ed Helms

Lionsgate, along with Ed Helms and Nicky Weinstock, have set up the pic “Epic Fail” with Helms attached to star and Weinstock on board to produce.

The pic follows an elite, but highly unorthodox special forces team as it takes its dysfunction and excessive firepower on a desperate mission to save America.

Weinstock will produce through his Invention Films banner, along with Helms and Michael Falbo via their Pacific Electric Picture Company banner. Whitney Thomas of Invention Films will exec produce.

Mike Arnold and Chris Poole will write the script. Overseeing for Lionsgate will be Erik Feig, co-president of Lionsgate Motion Picture Group, VP of production and development Matthew Janzen and creative executive James Myers.

Helms can be seen next in “They Came Together.” Helms, Arnold and Poole are represented by CAA and Principato-Young Entertainment.
