Brendan Fraser has signed on to star in the comedy In With the Outlaws for Stick ‘Em Up Productions.
Shoreline Entertainment will handle sales on the film.
The rootin’ tootin’gun slingin’ caper is due to commence principal photography this fall.
The film turns the classic western genre on its head as it portrays what life would be like for British immigrants settling in the Wild West.
In With the Outlaws is being directed by Andy Morahan (Highlander III: the Sorcerer, Murder in Mind) and is written and produced by Nicholas Sercombe.
Shoreline CEO Morris Ruskin said: “I’m attracted to the project because it is an extremely funny and entertaining script with a hero that is absolutely perfect for Brendan Fraser.”
Sercombe added: “We are delighted to have found a strong relationship with Morris Ruskin at Shoreline Entertainment, who is both a seasoned and respected producer and is highly compatible with a comedy feature such as In With the Outlaws”.
The deal was negotiated by Steve Macy on behalf of Shoreline and Sercombe on behalf of the production.
