Paramount In Negotiations to Develop Post-Apocalyptic Road Movie Monster Problems

Paramount is currently in negotiations to pick up and distribute the post-apocalyptic road movie ‘Monster Problems,’ according to The Hollywood Reporter. The spec script, which was written by Brian Duffield, will be produced by Shawn Levy and his 21 Laps banner. Billy Rosenberg and Dan Cohen will oversee the film at 21 Laps, whose deal with Paramount is reportedly in the low-to-mid six figures range.

Details about the plot-line of ‘Monster Problems’ are being kept secret. But it’s been described as being in the vein of ‘Mad Max’ and ‘Zombieland,’ with a mix of a John Hughes love story at its center. Duffield’s script garnered attention, after his Black List script ‘Jane Got a Gun’ attracted Natalie Portman to star and produce and Lynne Ramsey to direct. Eli Craig also recently signed on to direct his romantic comedy ‘Your Bridesmaid’s a Bitch.’

Levy, meanwhile, is looking to begin shooting his next movie, the Fox comedy ‘The Internship,’ next month. The director of such films as ‘Night at the Museum’ and ‘Date Night’ will re-team Vince Vaughn and Owen Wilson. 21 Laps is also set to produce the coming-of-age independent film ‘The Spectacular Now’ and the Fox 2000 Christmas comedy ‘Alone for the Holidays.’
