Tradecraft: The Family Bond

Variety reports that Universal has picked up a spec script by Jeff Lowell (writer of John Tucker Must Die) called The Family Bond for Marc Platt and the ubiquitous Miles Millar and Alfred Gough to produce. "Action comedy's described as a relationship story between a spy and his daughter," is all the trade says about the script. Its rival, The Hollywood Reporter, has a slightly more detailed logline, though: "The story centers on a girl who goes on an adventure to rescue her mother with the father she never knew she had, a Bond-like spy." Neither paper gives any indication of the script's tone. Is this a parody? Or a straightforward action comedy? Is it a family film? How old is the daughter? I guess we're all on a need-to-know basis for now...

Family action comedy - the daughter is sixteen. He teaches her to drive during a car chase, etc.
