iW News | Screen Gems Guffaws to Moniot's "Armageddagain"

Screen Gems has acquired “Armageddagain: The Day Before Tomorrow,” a comedy by director Robert Moniot from a screenplay he co-wrote with Travis Oates. Production is expected to begin in August for an ’08 release. Noah Emmerich is producing through his company Sandbox Entertainment. Moniot will also produce via his Big Picture Entertainment, along with Phil Goldfine through his Hollywood Media Bridge banner. ICM represented North American rights on the project, negotiating the sale with Michael Helfand, of Screen Gems. Odd Lot International will handle foreign sales at the upcoming Cannes Film Festival, in a deal negotiated by Brian O’Shea and Laura Ivey at Odd Lot Entertainment. “‘Armageddagain’ is a terrific project with a very clever and funny script,” commented Screen Gems president Clint Culpepper in a statement. “We are thrilled to be in the comedy business with Rob and Travis.” [Brian Brooks]
