Netflix has reportedly won a bidding war for Kevin Burrows and Matt Mider’s spec script “The Eggplant Emoji”.
The pair, who also created the digital animated series “Gentlemen Lobsters,” penned the R-rated dark comedy of a teenager accidentally cuts off his penis during a camping trip. He and his friends rush to save the appendage before it’s too late, and male bonding ensues.
Netflix reportedly beat out five other companies to land the project. Ben Stiller, Nicky Weinstock, Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck are on board to produce.
