Tom Vaughan to direct ‘Boomsday’

'What Happens in Vegas' helmer boards romantic comedy

Tom Vaughan (“What Happens in Vegas”) has been tapped to direct romantic comedy “Boomsday” for GreeneStreet Films and Das Films.

Project’s been adapted by Ron Bass and Jen Smolka from the novel of the same name by Christopher Buckley (“Thank You For Smoking”).

GreeneStreet Films will finance and produce with Sriram Das of Das Films with production set to begin in the second quarter.

“Boomsday” revolves around a Washington DC publicist who uses her blog to vent her frustrations and jokingly suggests that senior citizens voluntarily commit suicide to solve the Social Security crisis. When a handsome politician decides to take on the cause to prove a point, she finds herself both romantically and politically over her head.

Glen Basner’s FilmNation is selling international rights through his partnership with GreeneStreet.

Das and GreeneStreet have also teamed with Sidney Kimmel to produce an adaptation of Craig Clevenger’s “The Contortionsist’s Handbook” with Channing Tatum starring.

Vaughan’s credits include “Starter for Ten” and “Extraordinary Measures.”

Vaughan is represented by CAA. Buckley and Bass are both repped by ICM.
