Joe Nussbaum (Sydney White) has signed on to direct the comedy B.F.F. for Rogue Pictures. Beau Bauman and Jesse Israel are producing.
B.F.F. (AKA “best friends forever”) traces the story of two friends, a guy and a girl, over four years of high school, four proms and one funeral as they become unlikely best friends and eventually fall in love.
Chad and Dara Resnik Creasey, whose credits include “Studio 60 on the Sunset Strip” and “Pushing Daisies,” wrote the script.
The intent is to make an R-rated comedy along the lines of American Pie and Superbad. A winter start date is being eyed.
