Lizard takes WB’s ‘Wife’

Chandrasekhar will helm laffer

Warner Bros. Pictures has bought spec script “Take My Wife” and set it up with Jay Chandrasekhar’s comedy shingle Broken Lizard to produce. Chandrasekhar (“The Dukes of Hazzard”) will direct.

Broken Lizard’s Paul Soter penned the script with Lee Ellenberg.

Story centers on an average Joe who jokingly agrees to swap wives with a Hollywood superstar, setting off a disastrous chain of events.

Producers are Chandrasekhar, Soter and the other members of Broken Lizard — Kevin Heffernan, Steve Lemme and Eric Stolhanske.

Broken Lizard is prepping for the August release of “Beerfest” by Warners and has several other Warners projects in the works, including “Ambulance Chasers” and “Nutcracker.”
