Summit Entertainment has bought a pitch titled International Incident from former Daily Show head writer David Javerbaum.
Ken Jeong is attached to star in the comedy, and Steve Carellis in negotiations to produce through his Carousel Productions banner.
The story revolves around five delegates from the United Nations who embark on a road trip to find one of their lost loves. Javerbaum will pen the screenplay.
Carousel creative executives Charlie Hartsock and Vance Degeneres crafted the pitch, attached the talent and are shepherding the project. As a producer, Carell is busy on both the film and TV front.
