Paramount sweet on ‘Honey Pot’

Liz Meriwether wrote action-comedy pitch

Paramount Pictures has preemptively bought action-comedy pitch “Honey Pot” from scribe Liz Meriwether for the Montecito Co. to produce.

Details of the storyline are being kept under wraps. Pic will feature two female leads and be set in the world of international espionage.

Meriweather described the project as what happens “when a bunch of hot, funny women get their ‘Bourne’ on.”

Montecito principals Ivan Reitman, Tom Pollock and Jeffrey Clifford will produce.

Meriwether penned the Off Broadway play “Mistakes Madeline Made,” which led to the Fox TV pilot “Sluts” and friends-with-benefits comedy “Fuckbuddies,” which Montecito is also producing.

Meriwether is adapting Rudolph Delson’s tome “Maynard and Jennica” for producer Scott Rudin.

Montecito’s recent films include “I Love You, Man” and “Hotel for Dogs.” Upcoming projects include Jason Reitman comedy “Up in the Air,” starring George Clooney.
