Lynn Shelton to direct ‘Laggies’

'Humpday' helmer attached to Anonymous Content indie

“Humpday” helmer Lynn Shelton is attached to direct “Laggies,” an indie being produced by Anonymous Content.

Andrea Seigel wrote the script, which follows a woman who, unsure of how to respond to her boyfriend’s marriage proposal, pretends to go on a retreat but actually ends up spending a week with her new friends, all of whom are in high school.

Protag is described as a 28-year-old who has been living in perpetual adolescence, as she never switched over to the formality that adulthood imposes.

Steve Golin, Rosalie Swedlin and Alix Madigan will produce for Anonymous, which developed the project internally before attaching Shelton.

Shelton is also attached to direct an adaptation of Joshua Ferris’ novel “Then We Came to the End” for producers Ted Hope and Anne Carey, though “Laggies” will likely come first as casting will soon get under way.

Shelton wrote, directed, produced and co-starred in “Humpday,” which won a special jury prize at Sundance in 2009. Her follow-up feature, “Your Sister’s Sister,” is set to debut at the Toronto Film Festival. Pic stars Emily Blunt, Rosemarie DeWitt, Mark Duplass and comedian Mike Birbiglia.

UTA reps both Shelton and Seigel, who’s managed by Rio Hernandez. Shelton is managed by Anonymous Content.
