Teller in talks for ’21 and Over’

'Hangover' scribes to pen, direct comedy

EXCLUSIVE: “Rabbit Hole” thesp Miles Teller is in early negotiations to star in Mandeville Films’ comedy “21 and Over,” which will be released by Relativity Media.

“The Hangover” scribes Jon Lucas and Scott Moore are writing and directing the comedy, which follows two childhood friends who drag their straight-arrow buddy out to celebrate his 21st birthday the night before an all-important med school interview. But when one beer leads to another, the evening spirals into an epic misadventure of debauchery and mayhem that none of them will ever forget.

Mandeville principals Todd Lieberman and David Hoberman are producing the pic, which has not been greenlit yet, though it could go into production as soon as this summer.

Complicating negotiations is the fact that Paramount holds an option on Teller, who is being eyed for roles in Josh Schwartz’s “Fun Size” and the studio’s in-development comedy “I Want to ___ Your Sister,” which is being produced by Escape Artists. It remains unclear whether Par will exercise that option, but the studio clearly like Teller, who next stars in Par’s “Footloose” remake, slated for release on Oct. 14.

Additionally, Teller has wrapped the Todd Phillips-produced laffer “Project X,” which Warner Bros. recently pushed from Thanksgiving to sometime in 2012.

Teller is repped by CAA and Bold Management & Production.
