D Street Pictures has optioned a feature romantic comedy titled Heaven Hath No Fury, penned by Leon Chills and Chad Sanders of it Pictures - a production company with focus on financing films by people of color.
The story, which is drawing comparisons to Boomerang (the Eddie Murphy dramedy), follows a New York playboy whose decision to break the wrong woman’s heart, knocks the world out of kilter, as men start to see the world through the eyes of women.
“It was extremely exciting to meet such extraordinarily talented young African American men who clearly understood the genre,” said D Street CEO Dexter Davis, who was first pitched the project by the writers at Cannes 2013.
The project is currently in development, with D Street working to package it, and a late 2014 shoot date eyed.
Sanders and Chills are graduates of Morehouse College and this is their first feature script.
