Universal Pictures has set David Gordon Green and Danny McBride to script an untitled comic vehicle for Seann William Scott. Scott will produce with his Identity Films partner Graham Larson.
Scott and Larson have a first-look deal at the studio — a reward for the actor’s tenure as Stiffler, the sex-crazed bad boy from the “American Pie” pic series.
The new comedy focuses on a slacker who applies for a job as a summer camp counselor so he can relive his youthful glory days of panty raids and food fights. But the camp has become a haven for young brainiacs who’ve come for intellectual growth.
Scott and Larson enlisted Green because they liked his work as writer and director of “George Washington” and “All the Real Girls.” Green isn’t planning to direct the pic. U’s Damien Saccani will shepherd the project for the studio.
