Variety is reporting that Universal Pictures has acquired “The Photograph,” an original spec by Stella Meghie with Will Packer producing for his production company.

The spec is a generational story about love and family, which Meghie will also direct and executive produce. Will Packer Productions’ James Lopez will also produce.

Vice president of production Sara Scott and creative executive Mika Pryce will oversee production for Universal.

Meghie earned a best screenplay Independent Spirit Award nomination for her debut comedy feature, “Jean of the Joneses,” and she recently directed for Warner Bros. “Everything, Everything,” an adaptation of the best-selling novel, starring Amandla Stenberg. That movie grossed $61 million at the worldwide box office on a $10 million production budget.

Since he started working with Universal, a number of Packer’s films have done extremely well at the box office, including the “Ride Along” movies and, most recently, “Girls Trip,” which grossed more than $135 million at the worldwide box office. Packer was also an executive producer on “Straight Outta Compton,” which took in over $200M worldwide. They currently have two films in production: the Kevin Hart comedy “Night School” and “Breaking In” starring Gabrielle Union.

She is repped by CAA and Del Shaw Moonves.
