“We are thrilled to welcome Steven back to Warner Bros, ” said Greg Silverman, the studio’s President of Creative Development and Worldwide Production. “We had an historic series of collaborations in the 1980s and 1990s and have wanted to bring him back for years.”

The screenplay has been written by Zak Penn.

The movie has yet to be cast and there is no word yet on a production schedule.
