The plot, which involves a pregnant wife who switches places with her husband, is ridiculous.

Summit Entertainment picked up a comedy pitch to be scripted by Life As We Know It writers Ian Deitchman and Kristin Rusk Robinson, based on Jennifer Eatz’s treatment. Todd Garner and Eatz will produce. The pitch, a body swap tale about a pregnant wife who switches places with her husband (after encountering a fertility totem), is ridiculous. Is the world ready for “Freaky Friday Meets Junior” (you KNOW that was the pitch)? I know I’m not. I’ll be mentally preparing myself for this film for the next 3 months, which is probably home long it’ll take to get it made. I’m sure the script will take at least two weeks to write, and will feature a hilarious male breastfeeding scene. (Deadline)

Fox Picks Up ’29,’ Hollywood Officially Out Of Ideas http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/fox-picks-up-29-hollywood-officially-out-of-ideas/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/fox-picks-up-29-hollywood-officially-out-of-ideas/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Ah, to be young again. Hot on the heels of the magical time-travel plot device news, comes word that Hollywood is officially out of ideas. Fox has greenlighted the body swap 29. Based on the book by Adena Halpern, 29 tells the story of a 75-year old grannie who turns 29 again for just one day. She teams up with her granddaughter for an adventure, while her daughter and best friend assume she's been kidnapped and embark on their own mission to save the wrinkled, old coot. Okay. I'm just gonna put this out there. Nana, stop reading. Okay, no olds reading? Okay, here goes. F*ck old people. I don't need to see their adventures on-screen. I just need to know what to buy them for Christmas (otherwise they're getting gloves again). Stop wasting this genre on old person turns young stories, and give America what it really wants. A husband and wife switch bodies and while the wife/husband is trying her/his best to win the bread for the family, the husband/wife is sitting at home playing with his/her own boobs all day. It would be Hollywood's first approach at a body swap movie grounded in reality. (THR)
