Why is it such a snug fit for me? Let's just quote The Hollywood Reporter, "Loglines are being kept under wraps, but Fun is described as a cross between Superbad and Adventures in Babysitting that is set on Halloween." First off, set anything on Halloween and I'm instantly in (Trick 'r Treat is like one 82-minute long geekgasm for me). And second off, Superbad and Adventures in Babysitting occupy my favorite spirit-of-youth movie niche; single-night stories that spiral out of control.
No directors or stars are attached to the comedy yet, though that's no surprise considering its pick-up came a little prematurely. Josh Schwartz's production company, Fake Empire, signed a two-year first-look deal with Paramount, but that won't be effective until June 1st. Schwartz loved the script so much, however, he gave Paramount the first-look before their contract kicked off. Turns out they loved it too and are already moving to put it into their production pipeline.
