Teitelman is the Big Man on Campus

ON

Columbia Pictures has hired first-time feature helmer Mark Teitelman to direct its teen comedy Big Man on Campus, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story is set in motion as beauty and brains duke it out in high school, changing the perception of “popular” and crumbling the power structure. Gina Wendkos wrote the screenplay based on her own pitch.

Hal Lieberman, who produced Screen Gems’ upcoming horror film Vacancy, is producing “Big Man” through his Hal Lieberman Co.
