Helms, Morgan Play “TAG” At New Line

Ed Helms is set and Tracy Morgan is in negotiations to star in the Jeff Tomsic-directed comedy “TAG” for New Line.

The story is based on an actual group of friends who for thirty years played a bizarre cross country version of the venerable kids game Tag. Documented in a 2013 Wall Street Journal article, the ten class mates chased each other across the country each February, breaking into each other’s homes and doing whatever was necessary to get the job done.

Mark Steilen and Rob McKittrick penned the script while Steilen, Todd Garner and Sean Robins are producing.
