is well known television creator, producer and writer, and now he’s finally making his directorial debut with project titled Fun Size
The Halloween comedy is in development for Paramount, and at this moment we know that the studio picked up the spec script by Max Werner
So, we’re talking about “a teen comedy which follows teenager that ends up being forced to take her younger brother trick or treating, and loses him while they’re out.
It becomes a race for her to find him before their mother discovers she’s lost him.”
Schwartz co-created Chuck
and Gossip Girl
so we have no doubts he’ll manage this one as well.
On the other hand, The Colbert Report
writer Max Werner said:
“I grew up on John Hughes films and miss those great character-based comedies that make you feel something ‘Fun Size’ is about real characters who are smart, funny, and a little bit offbeat.”
The movie is not officially greenlighted, but is set to begin shooting late spring in St. Louis.
Schwartz will produce Fun Size with Stephanie Savage and Anonymous Content.
Shooting is scheduled for a late-spring start in St. Louis so that the film can be in theaters in time for Halloween.
