Comic scribe Harris Goldberg (“Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo”) and comic Dana Carvey have inked a high six-figure deal with Joe Roth’s Sony-based Revolution Studios to pen the original comedy “Master of Disguise.”
Carvey is attached to star in the film, which will be exec produced by Adam Sandler. Revolution plans to put the film into production in the fall, with Todd Garner overseeing it.
Story, an original idea by Goldberg and Carvey, revolves around the last remaining ancestor in a family of masters at disguise.
Goldberg, whose brother Danny produced “Road Trip” and sister Ilona Hertzberg is producing “13 Days,” is re-writing Interscope/Disney’s “The Worst Man,” being produced by Scott Kroopf and Tom Engelman and overseen at Disney by Buena Vista Motion Picture Group prexy Nina Jacobson.
He is also writing “Cock Sure,” an original idea set up at Warner Bros. with Zide/Perry attached to produce.
Goldberg is also penning a pilot for USA Networks, “Splits,” which he will exec produce and in which he will star. Along Jill Mazursky, Goldberg is developing VH-1’s first sitcom, “Elusive Drive.”
Goldberg is repped by Richard Arlook at the Gersh Agency.
