Director to helm, rewrite Walden summer camp laffer
Derick Martini (“Lymelife”) is going to camp, signing on to direct and rewrite Walden Media’s summer camp comedy “Cabin Pressure.”
Mike Tollin and Kim Zubick are producing, based on Josh Wolk’s 2007 tome “Cabin Pressure: One Man’s Desperate Attempt to Recapture His Youth as a Camp Counselor.” Wolk had written an article for The Boston Globe Sunday Magazine about becoming a counselor at the same summer camp he grew up attending.
“Lymelyfe,” exec produced by Martin Scorsese, received the International Critics Award at the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival. He recently sold his original comedy screenplay “I Am My Family’s Secret” to Paramount, which he’s attached to direct with Montecito Pictures producing.
Martini is also rewriting the adaptation of Andrea Portes’ novel “Hick,” which Chloe Moretz attached to star. Martini will direct.
Martini’s repped by ICM and Principato/Young.
