DreamWorks has snapped up the graphic novel The Return of King Doug for Ben Stiller to produce as a potential starring vehicle.
Greg Orb and Jason Oremland wrote King Doug, which will be published next year by Oni Press. The pair have been tapped to pen the screenplay.
Stiller is producing through his DreamWorks-based Red Hour Films alongside the shingle’s Stuart Cornfeld and Jeremy Kramer. Closed on Mondays’ Eric Gitter is also producing. Joe Nozemack and Peter Schwerin are exec producing.
