Tradecraft: Sony Buys Interpol Comedy
Variety reports that Sony has bought a comedy pitch called Interpol from writers Jonathan Keasey and Brant Bolvin for Will Smith's Overbrook Entertainment to produce. According to the trade, Interpol follows a group of desk jockey analysts who normally turn over their research to seasoned field agents who do the actual arresting of criminals. When a leak outs the field agents, the groups are forced to switch roles. Presumably, hilarity ensues. Overbrook was also behind the recent spy comedy This Means War.
