Disney has paid picked-up the comedy pitch The Other Guy from writers Brent Goldberg and David Wagner as a potential vehicle for Adam Shankman to direct.
The comedy concerns a couple who find their relationship falling apart after 25 years of marriage. As a result, the wife decides to move into the big city in search of adventure and a new life. In her search for fun and excitement she meets the hottest man alive -- young, handsome, rich, nice and half her age. When he hits on her and the two start dating, her husband is forced to compete with the younger man to win her back.
Shankman will next direct Enchanted for Disney. He is also attached to direct a remake of Topper for the studio and The Jetsons for Warner Bros.
