“The Hangover” director Todd Phillips’ Green Hat Films has renewed its first-look deal at Warner Bros. Pictures says Deadline.
Along with a third installment of “The Hangover” and next month’s “Project X”, his production company has four other projects in development at the studio – any of which could become potential directing vehicles for Phillips.
The first is an adaptation of Tony D’souza’s novel “Mule” about a young couple that turns to drug trafficking to scratch a living during the recession. The second is a film comedy based on YouTube and FunnyOrDie web shorts by Mike O’Connell and Ken Jeong called “Million Dollar Strong”.
The third is a secret project called “The Island” by “Due Date” scribe Adam Sztykiel. The fourth is “Arms and the Dudes”, an adaptation of a Rolling Stone article about the unlikely rise of two stoners in Miami Beach who became big-time arms dealers and suddenly had it all taken away by the Pentagon.
