Randall EinhornYou can probably count on two hands the number of hot-shot television stars who've successfully navigated a leap to the big screen, and when it comes to TV directors, the number is just as small. The stats, however, aren't deterring veteran television director Randall Einhorn in the slightest.

According to an exclusive report from the Los Angeles Times, Einhorn, who's helmed such disparate fare as 'Fear Factor,' 'Modern Family' and 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,' has been tapped to bring 'Late Bloomer,' a story about a man who hits puberty in his late '20s, to the big screen.

According to an exclusive report from the Los Angeles Times, Einhorn, who's helmed such disparate fare as 'Fear Factor,' 'Modern Family' and 'It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia,' has been tapped to bring 'Late Bloomer,' a story about a man who hits puberty in his late '20s, to the big screen.

Based on journalist Ken Baker's autobiographical memoir, 'Man Made,' the script, penned by Joe Nussbaum and punched up by seasoned sitcom writers Paul Kaplan and Mark Torgrove ('Spin City,' 'Just Shoot Me'), tells the tale of a man whose rare condition delayed the onset of puberty till he was well into adulthood. Production is slated to begin soon with the movie slated for release next August.

This won't be the first career re-invention for Einhorn, who was a successful, Emmy-nominated cinematographer for shows like 'Survivor' and 'The Office' before jumping behind the lens.
