The film has had a long gestation period: The story, originally titled 'B.F.F,' was written by 'Pushing Daisies' scribes Chad Gomez Creasey and Dara Resnik Creasey and was purchased by Rogue Pictures several years ago before being picked up by Fox 2000, then dropped by the studio. In 2007 'Sydney White' director Joe Nussbaum worked on the project; David O. Russell (who just signed on to direct 'Uncharted: Drake's Fortune') was set to direct last year.
Harris is seemingly everywhere. The ex-Doogie Howser recently directed a production of 'Rent' at the Hollywood Bowl, helmed an episode of his sitcom 'How I Met Your Mother,' nabbed Emmys for hosting the Tonys and guest-starring on 'Glee,' played Dr. Horrible, will next star in CBS Films' 'Beastly' in March and 'The Smurfs' in August, and will also appear once again as a skewed version of himself in the third 'Harold & Kumar' movie. Whew!
No further production details were released on the project but the Reporter speculates that it will once again be set up at Fox.
