EXCLUSIVE: The hot new pitch du jour that studios are circling is an untitled comedy that will be written by Aaron & Jordan Kandell, who worked on Moana and whose last spec script, Adrift, netted an STX deal with Baltasar Kormakur directing Shailene Woodley in the survival tale. The new pitch has Josh Gad, Luke Evans and Star Wars‘ Daisy Ridley attached and it is expected to land quickly. I’m told the best way to describe it is a character-driven comedy that takes an original spin on the superhero genre. This was an idea by Gad, who put it together at his Angry Child Productions label, and brought Evans and Ridley, with whom he’d worked recently. Gad then interviewed writers and brought in the Kandell brothers. Gad worked with Evans on Beauty and the Beast and he worked with Ridley on the upcoming Murder on the Orient Express. Gad currently stars in Marshall; Evans also is coming off The Fate of the Furious; and Ridley next stars in Star Wars: The Last Jedi. WME, CAA and Lighthouse are out with the project. Stay tuned.

It’s a sweet clip! You can watch it below.
Luke worked in a movie a few years ago that had a limited release titled Message From the King. The movie was released on Netflix a couple of days ago so make sure to check it out. I’ve updated the gallery with High Quality screencaptures of Luke from the movie.
