Walden to update genie story

Kerner to produce 'Gene'

Walden Media is looking to update the classic genie story as a buddy comedy. The shingle has set up “Gene” with Jordan Kerner producing through his Kerner Entertainment banner.

Walden acquired the pitch from Randi Mayem Singer, who’s penning the script. Logline is being kept under wraps.

Singer is reteaming with Walden after writing upcoming Fox comedy “The Tooth Fairy,” starring Dwayne Johnson, Julie Andrews and Billy Crystal.

Kerner, who produced “Charlotte’s Web” for Walden and Paramount, developed the genie project. Kerner is currently in pre-production for “Smurfs” at Sony, due out in 2011.
