Walden Rubs The Genie’s Lamp

Walden Media has picked up Randi Mayem Singer’s script for Gene.

The Hollywood Reporter describes Gene as a modern-day take on the genie story. According to Walden CEO Michael Bostick, it’s a family comedy combining “originality, humor, heart and broad appeal that all ages can enjoy.”

Screenwriter Singer is the creator of TV series Jack & Jill and co-writer of Mrs. Doubtfire, which bodes well, and is currently working on a script for Big Momma’s House 3, which doesn’t.

No director is attached yet, but Jordan Kerner (Charlotte’s Web) is producing under his Kerner Entertainment Banner.
