Tornante has hired the comedy writing team Jim and Brian Kehoe to pen an untitled internal comedy idea. The logline is being kept under wraps, but centers around the Olympic Village.
Eisner, who was the CEO of Disney for 17 years, founded Tornante in 2005 and acquired Topps baseball card publishers, Internet chore site TaskRabbit and made-for-Internet production shingle Vuguru.
Eisner signed a worldwide distribution deal in late 2012 with Universal, under which Uni agreed to put up the P&A for a certain amount of qualifying pictures, returning Eisner to the moviemaking business.
Netflix acquired Tornante’s animated comedy “Bojack Horseman,” with a voice cast including Will Arnett and Aaron Paul, late last year in the streamer’s first adult-oriented animated original.
The Kehoe Brothers sold their Black List script “Cherries” to Good Universe in 2012 with Seth Rogen, Evan Goldberg and DMG producing and Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg directing.
The Kehoes are rewriting Disney’s “The Wheelman,” originally scripted by Thomas Lennon and Ben Garant, and recently sold their action-comedy pitch “Top of the Food Chain” to Lionsgate with Tyler Perry’s 34th Street Films and DMG producing.
They are represented by WME and managed by DMG Entertainment.
