City Lights Pictures and MEGA Films have teamed to finance and produce “The Ten,” a comedy spoofing the Ten Commandments, to be directed by David Wain (“Wet Hot America Summer”).
Pic, written by Wain and Ken Marino, will star Paul Rudd, Amanda Peet, Jessica Alba, Ken Marino, Justin Theroux and Adam Brody.
Jonathan Stern will produce with Morris Levy for MEGA along with Marino, Rudd and Wain. City Lights CEO Danny Fisher and Michael Almog will exec produce, Michael Califra will co-exec produce and Marcus Lansdell will associate produce.
Filming will begin in July, primarily in New York.
Wain’s credits include small-screen comedy series “The State” and Comedy Central show “Stella.” Marino is screenwriter, producer and cast member of “Diggers,” which will be released later this year by HDNet/Magnolia.
City Lights and MEGA just completed principal photography on the thriller “Descent,” produced by and starring Rosario Dawson. City Lights also produced “Tamara” for Lionsgate and “Interrupted,” directed by Philip Kaufman.
