'Broad City' creators, Paul Feig join forces for big-screen comedy

'Broad City' creators Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson have sold a comedy script to be produced by Paul Feig

"Broad City" creators and stars Ilana Glazer and Abbi Jacobson are expanding their horizons. Having made the leap from the Web to Comedy Central with their breakout series, the two have now sold an untitled comedy script to 20th Century Fox, a studio spokesperson confirmed to The Times.

Paul Feig, a filmmaker known for collaborating with hilarious women on movies such as "Bridesmaids," "The Heat" and the upcoming "Ghostbusters" reboot, is attached to produce alongside Jessie Henderson.

Though Glazer and Jacobson work both sides of the camera in "Broad City," they are not attached to star in the new film, nor is Feig attached to direct. Plot details for the project have yet to be revealed.

The Hollywood Reporter first reported the news.

Glazer and Jacobson aren't the only members of the "Broad City" family to make movie news recently: Last week, show writers Lucia Aniello and Paul W. Downs were hired by Sony to pen a female-led spinoff of the "21 Jump Street" action-comedy franchise.
