Duo set to have ‘Two Night Stand’

Miles Teller, Analeigh Tipton to star in Black List rom-com

Flynn Picture Co. and producer Ruben Fleischer have tapped Miles Teller and Analeigh Tipton to star in the romantic comedy “Two Night Stand,” which music video helmer Max Nichols will direct from a Black List script by Mark Hammer.

Story follows a pair of unlikely lovers who are trapped together in an apartment after a record-breaking blizzard forces them to extend a regrettable one-night stand.

Beau Flynn and Fleischer (“Gangster Squad”) will produce, while FPC’s Adam Yoelin will exec produce. Indie pic will mark the feature helming debut of Nichols, the son of director Mike Nichols. Production is slated for the end of September. UTA is putting the financing together and repping world rights.

Teller broke out in John Cameron Mitchell’s “Rabbit Hole” and went on to co-star in Craig Brewer’s “Footloose” remake. Thesp appeared in WB’s hit comedy “Project X” and recently wrapped a pair of studio comedies — Relativity Media’s “21 and Over” and CBS Films’ “Get a Job.” He’s currently filming James Ponsoldt’s indie “The Spectacular Now,” which also stars Shailene Woodley and Brie Larson. He’s repped by CAA, Bold Management and attorney Chad Christopher.

Tipton got her start on “America’s Next Top Model,” which she parlayed into roles in “Crazy, Stupid, Love” and Whit Stillman’s “Damsels in Distress.” Thesp will next be seen in Jonathan Levine’s Summit pic “Warm Bodies.” She’s repped by Abrams Artists Agency and Thirdhill Entertainment.
