Bobby Farrelly has signed on to direct comedy “One Night Stan,” Foresight Unlimited announced Tuesday.
This will mark the first time Farrelly has directed a film without his brother Peter Farrelly, though the two were previously attached to direct “One Night Stan” together. The brothers are known for comedies like “Dumb and Dumber To” and “There’s Something About Mary.”
“One Night Stan” centers on Stan, a charmer known for his one-night-stands and firm commitment not to commit who falls hard for a dazzler named Amy. When he decides to change his wanton ways, he discovers that Amy has her own ideas about relationships.
The script is written by Kevin Barnett, Chris Pappas and Mike Bernier. Producers are Farrelly, Foresight’s Mark Damon, Serafini Pictures’ Susanne Bohnet, with Peter Farrelly, Foresight’s Tamara Birkemoe, Shaun Redick, Raymond Mansfield and Grant Cramer executive producing.
Foresight Unlimited is handling international sales and will introduce the film to buyers at the EFM in Berlin next month.
“I’m very excited to be directing ‘One Night Stan,'” Farrelly said in a statement. “Every successful comedy starts with a good script, and this one’s a beauty. It’s got all the elements I look for — a fresh story, lots of laughs, great twists, and plenty of heart. Casting it should be a lot of fun because there are some fantastic roles.”
