Mottola set to direct ‘Adventureland’

Greg Mottola, who ended a decade-long gap between feature directing gigs with “Superbad,” is set to direct “Adventureland” for Miramax and Sidney Kimmel. Produced by Gotham indie This Is That, film is also to be written by Mottola. Jesse Eisenberg (“The Squid and the Whale”) is attached to star. Shooting is set for this fall in Pittsburgh. Story, set in the summer of 1987, concerns an uptight recent college grad who’s forced to take a minimum-wage job at the local amusement park after realizing he can’t afford his dream European tour. The experience helps him to loosen up a bit as he finds first love, forms new friendships and matures just in time to enter the real world in the fall.
