Stiller Catches a "Big Wave"

by | March 30, 2006 | Comments

Variety reports that actor/producer Ben Stiller has a new project lined up at Fox: A surf-centric comedy entitled "Big Wave," that sounds to be in the same vein as "Dodgeball."

"Ben Stiller and his Red Hour partner Stuart Cornfeld are producing the pitch "Big Wave" by Brent Forrester at Twentieth Century Fox. The directing team of Brendan and Emmett Malloy is helming.

Pic, based on an idea by Stiller, is a sports comedy about a big-wave surfer who, after being sidelined for years following a traumatic wipeout, decides to surf again in order to raise money to save a convalescent home for old surfers."

Forrester, a former Simpsons writer, has a variety of projects on various burners, including "Gazillionaire" for New Line and "Arthur Spiderwick" for Paramount.
