Pelican Point Media has worldwide rights to finance, produce and distribute, and the film will be produced by Ike Suri, Epstein and Javier Chapa. Esptein produced “Ghost of Girlfriends Past”, “Dan in Real Life’ and “About A boy’. He also served as president of production at Robert De Niro’s Tribeca Productions.

Suri, the co-CEO of Pelican Point Media, recently co-financed and exec produced “Cabin Fever: Reboot,” with Eli Roth and Cassian Elwes, and “Daughter Of God,” with Keanu Reeves and Elwes. He’s also exec producing the upcoming film “The Brits Are Coming,” starring Uma Thurman.

The release date of the movie has yet to be revealed and we’re not too sure if “Ripped” will be similar to upcoming comedy “American Ultra” starring Kristen Stewart but we’re sure excited to watch Peters and Love team up.
