The studio has announced they've tasked Michael Bacall -- "Project X," "21 Jump Street," "Scott Pilgrim vs. the World" to write the script, with Joel Silver producing the laffer. And it will be quite different. Firstly, it's going to be R-rated and "edgier," but perhaps more inexplicably, they're aiming for something between 'Jump Street' and "The Hangover," which kind of makes zero sense to us. We're mostly just curious how it'll tackle the whole "creating the perfect woman" part of the story and we presume it'll ditch the more surreal elements for wacky teenage antics.
Anyway, put it on Bacall's to-do list and we'll see how this develops and who comes around to try and fill Hughes' shoes. [Deadline]
