Stalberg to direct ‘Spanking Shakespeare’

The "High School" helmer will also rewrite the script for Paramount

John Stalberg Jr. is set to direct Paramount Pictures’ “Spanking Shakespeare.”

Stalberg will also rewrite the script penned by Dan Lagana that he adapted from the book by Jake Wizner.

Pic follows the unfortunately named Shakespeare Shapiro, who turns his high school upside-down when he unwittingly becomes an Internet sensation and the face of an anti-college revolution. Mark Canton and Ellen Goldsmith-Vein are producing through Canton’s Atmosphere Entertainment and Vein’s Gotham Group.

Stalberg is best known for directing “High School” with Adrien Brody and Michael Chiklis.

Stalberg is repped by CAA, Kaplan/Perrone Entertainment and Myman Greenspan Fineman Fox Light.
