Spoofer’s original

Gallen set to develop, helm 'Teen Movie'

Joel Gallen will develop and direct Original Film’s “Teen Movie” — and that’s no joke.

Gallen made his name mocking and juxtaposing pop culture films that have become the staples for a myriad of musicvideo, movie and fashion awards cable kudocasts, so helming this spoof, penned by “Scary Movie” scribes Phil Beauman and Buddy Johnson, seems only natural.

“Teen Movie” is a spoof of movies aimed at the Clearasil set, including “Clueless” and “Road Trip” and “Can’t Hardly Wait.”

The Col pic is slated to go before cameras this November.

While an exec at MTV, Gallen created the MTV Movie Awards, which he now produces via his Tenth Planet Prods. He also produced the VH1 Fashion Awards from 1996-98.

Gallen directed the spoof “Being Tom Cruise” for the 2000 MTV Movie Awards, a comedy starring Cruise and Ben Stiller, with Stiller playing Cruise’s stunt double in “M:I 2.”

He also directed “Sex and the Matrix,” starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Jimmy Fallon, which opened the 2000 MTV movie awards, spoofing a combination of “Sex and the City” and “The Matrix.”

Gallen also produced the short film “Zoolander” for Stiller — which is now being developed into a feature film at Paramount by Scott Rudin.

Gallen was repped in the “Teen Movie” deal by UTA and attorney Jared Levine. He is managed by Bender-Spink.
