Production began last month in Venice Beach on the film, which stars Willis as a down but not out L.A. private investigator whose professional and personal worlds collide after his loving pet Buddy is stolen by a notorious gang. A series of bizarre circumstances find him doing the gang’s bidding, while being chased by two vengeful Samoan brothers, a loan shark’s goons, and a few other shady characters.

Mark and Robb Cullen, who also wrote the Willis-starring movie Cop Out, are directing the film.

Financial details of the multi-season deal weren’t revealed. The first season is set to air in early 2015.

The Goldbergs premiered in the U.S. in September 2013 with an audience of more than 11 million, and the first season averaged 7 million viewers across its 23-episode run. The family comedy also stars Jeff Garlin, Wendi McLendon-Covey and George Segal.

The sitcom is based loosely on showrunner Adam Goldberg’s own upbringing in the 1980s and is told from the perspective of the youngest child Adam (Sean Giambrone).

The Goldbergs have already proved to be immensely popular with viewers in the U.S. with the show’s brilliant blend of humor, nostalgia and original storytelling. Following our recent sale of hit comedy Marry Me, it will make a great addition to E4’s new year programming,” said Mike Wald, executive VP international distribution for Sony Pictures Television:

The show is produced by Happy Madison Productions, Adam F. Goldberg Productions and Exhibit A Productions in conjunction with Sony Pictures Television.

Filmmakers Saba & Iglesias Enter Into “A Good Marriage”

Filmmakers Jonathan Saba and Juan Iglesias are about to remake a beloved French classic…

Saba and Iglesias, who are partners of the Los Angeles-based Rilean Pictures, have acquired the rights to Eric Rohmer’s Le Beau Mariage (A Good Marriage). The late Rohmer was an influential French New Wave director.

Saba and Iglesias will write and produce the remake of the film, which was originally released in 1982. Le Beau Mariage stars Béatrice Romand as Sabine, an eccentric fed up with being the mistress of a married man who decides it’s time to get married herself. She pursues an affluent lawyer several years her senior, setting in motion an absurd quest.

Iglesias says he and Saba “feel truly indebted to Eric Rohmer and the path he helped forge for independent cinema.” Saba added they are excited to “be able to interpret Rohmer’s distinctive take on relationships and customary dry wit for an entirely new audience.”

Iglesias most recently co-wrote and executive produced AMC’s The Trivial Pursuits of Arthur Banks starring Jeffrey Tambor, Adam Goldberg and Pete Chekvala.
