‘Travels’ to DreamWorks

Studio picks up sci-fi comedy

DreamWorks has acquired spec script “Gullible’s Travels,” a sci-fi comedy penned by Ron Friedman and Steve Bencich (“Open Season”), and set up the project with Bob Cooper’s Landscape Entertainment.

Story centers on the planet’s most gullible man, who’s traveling through time via a portable potty to save the life of the woman he loves; as he runs into the woman in the past and future, he believes he’s meeting relatives of the woman rather than the woman herself.

Friedman and Bencich will exec produce. Project was brought to Cooper by senior VP Orin Woinsky, who was originally involved in “Gullible’s Travels” several years ago while an exec at Outlaw Entertainment.

Since Friedman and Bencich wrote the script, they have received credits on animated pics “Chicken Little,” “Brother Bear” and “Open Season.” They’ve also sold “The Missing Link” pitch to Disney and “The Treehouse” to Warner Bros.

Cooper’s produced “John Tucker Must Die” for Fox and “Mr. Woodcock” for New Line, and he’s developing “The Crusaders” for New Line.
