According to Variety, Universal Pictures and Strike Entertainment have set
the scripting team of John Altschuler and Dave Krinsky to write “Brothers of
Invention.” Strike’s Eric Newman and Marc Abraham will produce. Altschuler
and Krinsky, who are coming off the Will Ferrell-Jon Heder figure-skating
comedy hit “Blades of Glory,” are the showrunners on Mike Judge’s Fox
series “King of the Hill.” In “Brothers of Invention,” a TV psychologist
discovers that his recurring dreams are repressed memories, which leads
him to discover a twisted family he never knew about. Newman hatched
the project and pitched it to the writers. Tom Lassally and Michael
Rotenberg are coming aboard to be exec producers.

Strike is in production with Spyglass on the Greg Kinnear starrer “Flash of
Genius,” which Abraham is directing, and are in pre-production on
CREATURE FROM THE BLACK LAGOON, the Gary Ross-scripted remake that
Breck Eisner is directing. Strike is producing with Ross. Altschuler and
Krinsky are rewriting “The Jetsons” at Warner Bros. for director Robert
Rodriguez and producers Donald De Line and Denise Di Novi. The scribes
also rewrote “The Giants of Groil,” based on the children’s book “The Giants
and the Joneses.” The pair are repped by Endeavor and 3 Arts.
