Scott Rudin To Produce Disney's Boss

For a man who seems to only produce prestige pictures that have the Academy foaming at the mouth, Scott Rudin has spent an awful lot of time locating his funnybone of late. And he’s at it again, with the news that he’ll produce the comedy, Boss, for Disney.

A workplace comedy written by Tony Lord and David Cohen, Boss revolves around a nice, simple yet high-concept story about a 21 year-old kid who becomes his father’s boss. Needless to say, hilarity ensues.

Rudin, who has produced the laugh-a-minute likes of No Country For Old Men, Doubt and **Revolutionary Road **in the past couple of years, has set up several comedies at Disney over the last few months, including swimming comedy, Synchronicity, and Hours Of Fun. He’s had success with comedies in the past, though, including Team America: World Police, so it shouldn’t come as too much of a shock to see him dabbling in the lighter side of the market.

No director has yet been found for Boss.
