Walden Media has nabbed the rights to Carley and Chelsea Steiner’s script Tough Cookies.
The high-concept comedy pitch sees a judge ordering a deadbeat dad and his rebellious daughter’s friends to form a scout troop, reports Variety .
You can probably guess what happens next (this is a high-concept script, after all): yes, the scrappy, seemingly inappropriate troop goes up against Snobby Rivals in a Big Competition.
Looks like we’re in for another battle of competing factions – the likeable losers versus the pouting perfectionists. Let’s hope it’s more Animal House than The House Bunny.
Oh, and if it becomes a Daddy Day Care-style project for the likes of Eddie Murphy, we’re boycotting.
