Hollywood’s favorite couple is putting on their production hats for a new teen comedy, Shadow and Act reports.
Will Smith and his wife Jada Pinkett Smith landed a deal with Sony Pictures to produce a high school comedy currently titled Ultra. Few details are known about the project, but it will be considered an R-rated flick.
Smith’s production company, Overbrook Entertainment, will oversee the project with Sony.
The film will be written by twins Shea and Evan Mirzai, whose raunchy comedy scripts have made the critically acclaimed “Black List” for three years in a row.
Meanwhile, Smith is making promotion rounds with his Suicide Squad cast members, including an appearance at this year’s Comic-Con on July 11. The cast includes Focus co-star Margot Robbie, Jared Leto, and Viola Davis. Smith assured fans the DC film will be “something you will all love.”
The Suicide Squad trailer has been viewed an astounding 50.9 million times, topping the trailer to Ben Affleck’s Batman v. Superman.
