Following “Silver Linings Playbook,” Chris Tucker has come on to star in the Relativity pic “Second Honeymoon.”

Phil Joanou will helm and rewrite the script by Peter Gaulke and Kevin Heffernan. The Wrap broke the news.

Story follows a married couple who return to Antigua on their second honeymoon in an effort to spice things up. However, the legacy they left ten years ago comes back to haunt both of them, and before they know it, the trip is less about trying to reconnect with their younger, wilder selves and more about trying to get off the island alive.

Relativity Media has worldwide rights to finance, produce and distribute the project, which Todd Garner  is producing with Relativity CEO Ryan Kavanaugh and Tucker’s producing partner Karen Bell. Tucker will serve as an executive producer.

After taking a five year hiatus from acting, Tucker has started building up his slate including a supporting role in “Silver Linings Playbook.” The WME-repped Tucker was also up for the lead role in “Django Unchained.”
