Tom Lennon and Robert Ben Garant set to rewrite Wee McGinty
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Summit Entertainment has acquired Tom Lennon and Robert Ben Garant to rewrite the comedy WEE MCGINTY. Lennon and Garant, best known for their work on the NIGHT AT THE MUSEUM series, have taken over writing duties from Mark Gibson and Phil Halprin. The film has been described as, “Bourne Identity, but plug in a leprechaun instead of Matt Damon.” The film follows the short little guy after he loses his memory and temporarily settles in with a group of Chicago firefighters. When he is found by his fellow leprechauns his world turns upside down and wishes start flying everywhere. Robert Ben Garant will not only help with the writing, but he is also set to direct and Tom Lennon will star in the film.
I’m sure most everyone is familiar with Lennon and Garant from their stint in the show RENO 911!. Although not my cup of tea, I have hopes for this comedy because leprechauns are funny.
