Universal gets Jay Roach to produce an untitled family adventure

May. 26, 2011by: Niki Stephens

Larry Stuckey is popular today. First the guy gets a job writing the Uglydolls movie and now he is getting to pen another untitled family adventure flick. Good for you! Glad to see that as one of the writers of LITTLE FOCKERS, you are still getting work.

Jay Roach will be producing the pitch from Stuckey. Dean Parisot (FUN WITH DICK & JANE) will direct the comedy.

The plot centers on, "a man and a woman who put aside their adventurous days in order to have a family. When the man finds his life a bit routine, he can't resist going off in search of a long-buried, fabled icon, convincing his family they're merely going on vacation." Sounds like the typical money making family fare.

Stuckey and Roach have worked together on FOCKERS.

Extra Tidbit: Today I learned that Roach is married to Susanna Hoffs of The Bangles. Well done!

I'm rather mystified by Jay Roach. He had some success in the late '90s with Austin Powers, made two Meet the ... movies, one of which was good, he made some downright crap. And then he directs a movie for HBO about the aftermath of the 2000 election that's actually pretty good, and he's slated for another one about the 2008 election. But I see he's still firmly invested in the family-friendly gross-out comedy. Even if he is just producing. I just find it rather fascinating what he's capable of

Plot

Anybody else think it sounds like a live-action The Incredibles, minus the super-power angle.

Yeah, that's what I thought! It's like live action for The Incredibles.
