Tim Allen, Disney saddle up again

Actor will write and star in 'Brothers'

Disney has acquired “Brothers,” a pitch for a Tim Allen comedy vehicle that Allen will write with Matt Carroll.

Story concerns a racially mixed pair of adopted brothers who are framed for a crime and forced to team up.

Allen, who recently wrapped the David Mamet-directed “Redbelt” for Sony Pictures Classics, just committed to playing the title character in indie comedy “The Six Wives of Henry Lefay.” He last starred for Disney in “Wild Hogs” and is poised to reprise his role in the sequel.

Carroll, who most recently sold the script “Random Acts of Cruelty” to Sony and Escape Artists, worked for several years in development for Allen.
