The film will be directed by brothers Petter and Bobby Farrelly, who also directed the original. The brothers reportedly did a re-write on the original script which was penned by Sean Anders and John Morris, the co-writers of "Hot Tub Time Machine" and "She's out of my league."
Warner Bros., who originally had the rights to the film, dropped the project last week.
