“National Treasure” film series director Jon Turteltaub is attached to helm “A Matter of Size”, a remake of a sumo-themed 2009 Israeli comedy at Permut Presentations and Paramount Pictures says The Hollywood Reporter.
Howard Franklin is penning the character-driven comedy about a group of overweight people who become sumo wrestlers.
David Permut will produce. Permut was previously in talks with Dimension Films about the project but that never happened, so now things are moving at Paramount. Carol Baum and Howard Rosenman are also producing.
