The Hollywood Reporter writes that the legendary comedy duo of Fred Savage and Charlize Theron is getting together to make Ladies Night. Savage, who has been killing it directing sitcoms, will direct, and Theron, who doesn’t do comedies often enough, will star and produce. The film, which was written by Happy Endings’ creator David Caspe, follows a woman who decides to have one last crazy night with her friends before moving to New York. Sounds good — you can’t go wrong with Savage and Theron, comedy-makers extraordinaire.
