Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini ("Girl Most Likely," "American Splendor") are set to direct the indie rom-com "My Beautiful Coma" for Mandalay Vision and Rat Entertainment.
The pair will rewrite Chris Downey's script which follows an estranged couple who, after a car accident, find themselves side by side in the hospital, in comas.
In their comatose state, each escape into their own alternate-reality where they are able to live out their every whim and fantasy. When they cross over into each other's coma-worlds, trouble ensues.
Cathy Schulman, Matt Rhodes and Brett Ratner will produce.
