Warren Zide enrolls in ‘High School’

John Stalberg Jr. set to direct comedy

Warren Zide (“American Pie”) is going back to “High School,” snapping up a comedy spec script of that title from John Stalberg Jr. and Stephen Susco (“The Grudge”), with Stalberg set to direct the project.

Zide’s producing through his Parallel Zide banner; Stalberg and Susco are exec producing along with Ryan Lewis. Shooting’s planned for later this year.

Story centers on a high school valedictorian who, after getting high with the school stoner and facing a drug test, makes what seems like the only logical decision: getting the entire school stoned so he can beat the test by making everyone fail.

Zide has recently announced development of “The Harvard Zombie Massacre” and signed Joe Dante to helm horror project “Bat Out of Hell.” He’s partnering with Parallel Media on a $70 million production financing deal covering eight films.

Stalberg and Susco have partnered with Michael Douglas’ Further Films to produce the thriller “Zero Dark Thirty,” with Susco penning the screenplay.
