Summit & Mandalay Go Mental

Summit Entertainment has picked up “Delta Farce” scribes Bear Aderhold and Tom Sullivan’s broadly comic spec script “Mental” for Mandalay Pictures to produce says The Hollywood Reporter.

“Mental” follows an orderly who is promised part of a $3 million inheritance from a mentally disturbed patient in his care — but only if they can break out of an asylum and get to court to collect the loot.

On the way from the Pasadena institution to Santa Monica, the seemingly stable patient begins to reveal personality disorders that make for a disastrous road trip.
