Scribe Ed Solomon (“Men in Black”) has been hired to pen the comedy based on the classic young-adult mystery novels “The Hardy Men” for Fox 2000 says The Hollywood Reporter.
The Hardy Boys adventures revolved around the mystery-solving efforts of teenagers Frank and Joe Hardy, amateur detectives who often helped their father, a private investigator.
The film adaptation would explore the reunion of the estranged, grown-up brothers, who work together to solve a new mystery.
Ben Stiller and Tom Cruise remain lined up to star in the project with “Night at the Museum” helmer Shawn Levy attached to direct. Stiller and Stuart Cornfield are producing.
