Relativity Media will produce and finance Turkeys with Reel FX. Woody Harrelson and Owen Wilson play two turkeys who find a time machine in a secret government laboratory and aim to go back to the very first Thanksgiving, and get turkeys off the menu!
That sounds like a complete riot.
Variety reports that Relativity will also distribute Turkeys on the domestic front. Jimmy Hayward of Horton Hears a Who! directs from the script by David I. Stern, John Strauss and Craig Mazin. Scott Mosier produces with all three scribes.
Relativity's giving the film a 2014 release.
Harrelson can be seen in CBS Films' hilarious comedy crime flick Seven Pyschopaths. He's in post-production on Out of the Furnace for helmer Scott Cooper, with Christian Bale, Zoe Saldana, Willem Dafoe, Casey Affleck, Forest Whitaker and Sam Shepard also starring. He's also finished work on Louis Leterrier's thriller Now You See Me. That film opens June 7th, 2013 and also stars Morgan Freeman, Mark Ruffalo, Isla Fisher, Jesse Eisenberg, Michael Caine, Dave Franco, Mélanie Laurent and Elias Koteas.
Wilson impressed with his performance in Woody Allen's Midnight in Paris, and was last seen in the underrated comedy The Big Year with Jack Black and Steve Martin. He's in post-production on Matthew Weiner's You Are Here with Zach Galifianakis and Amy Poehler, as well as Shawn Levy's The Internship. That film scripted by actor Vince Vaughn, also includes Will Ferrell, Rose Byrne, John Goodman, Max MInghella and Jessica Szohr.
Gobble Gobble - Thanksgiving's coming soon. Almost time to get that Turkey shopping done.
