Mumbai: Columbia Pictures has inked the writing team of Tim and Tom Mullen to adapt the raucous comedy novel The Swap by Antony Moore for the screen, it was announced by Columbia Pictures presidents Doug Belgrad and Matt Tolmach. John Calley, Diana Napper, and Lisa Medwid will produce the film for John Calley Productions.
The Swap is a superbly plotted comedy that centers on an out-of-shape comic book dealer who, haunted by the casual loss of a priceless comic book, tries to reverse his fortunes at his high school reunion – and becomes involved in murder, romance, and the unearthing of long-buried secrets.
Vice president Rachel O’Connor will oversee for Columbia Pictures.
Mullens are set to direct their teen comedy Deers and Beers with Montecito producing. Their other projects include One of the Guys for Fox with Sandra Bullock attached to star and Strike for Vantage with Mark Waters attached to direct.
