Wolf at bay to direct ‘Pete’

Spade co-wrote L.A. comedy

Fred Wolf will direct Revolution Studios’ “Puka Pete” from a script he co-wrote with David Spade.

Project will be produced by Barry Barnardi and Revolution partner Todd Garner. Adam Sandler and Jack Giarraputo, via their Happy Madison banner, are exec producing. Production is slated to begin in Los Angeles in April. The film’s female lead has yet to be cast.

Story centers around a man who has been stranded on a desert island for 30 years. The man, who no longer has an immune system (and is thus allergic to everything), must brave the city of Los Angeles in search of his true love.

Sandler and Giarraputo produced “The Animal,” due out from Revolution this summer, with Rob Schneider starring.

Revolution’s “Tom Cats,” starring Jerry O’Connell, Shannon Elizabeth and Jake Busey, opens March 30. The shingle is lensing “America’s Sweethearts,” starring Julia Roberts and Catherine Zeta-Jones, with Revolution topper Joe Roth at the helm.
