The movie will be produced by Rogen and Goldberg via their Point Grey Pictures production company. Reiser, who pitched the story based on a vacation he took to Jamaica with his grandmother when he was 14, will write the script. Levine is attached to direct.
"This is a story that I've long wanted to tell," Reiser said of the movie. "It's something of a passion project for me, and I couldn't be more excited to have found it a home at Mandate.”
Rogen, Reiser, Goldberg and Levine recently collaborated on the cancer comedy "50/50," which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rogen and Anna Kendrick and is slated for a September 30 release via Summit Entertainment. Rogen and Goldberg have collaborated on numerous films, including "Pineapple Express," "Superbad," and "The Green Hornet."
