According to a Empire Online report, the film has passed through studios including Paramount and Sony, but now both a director and writer have been attached. The screenplay comes from D.V. DeVincentis who previously adapted High Fidelity and co-wrote Grosse Pointe Blank. Both films included a fair amount of punk rock references, particularly the latter film which saw a soundtrack assembled by Joe Strummer.
The film is set to be directed by Matt Piedmont who directed shorts for Funny or Die! and Will Ferrel's new comedy, Casa de mi Padre.
Shooting scheduled to start in June in Connecticut.
