Fox Atomic project due to start early 2008
Ari Sandel is set to direct “Brad Cutter Ruined My Life … Again,” a comedy project Fox Atomic has acquired and is slotting for production early next year. Donald De Line is producing.
Joe Nussbaum’s script concerns a high school nerd who, after getting a good job and a beautiful girlfriend, becomes unhinged when his company hires the guy who was most popular in his high school, and who made the nerd’s life unbearable.
Project was originally acquired by Warner Bros., and Fox Atomic took it out of turnaround.
Sandel just directed the feature doc “Vince Vaughn’s Wild West Comedy Show,” to be released in February by Picturehouse. He won the 2007 Oscar for live-action short for “West Bank Story.”
