Mean Girls helmer Mark Waters is attached to direct Joshua Ferris’ comedy-drama Seven Days for Universal Pictures, says The Hollywood Reporter. Watermark Pictures’ Jessica Tuchinsky and Waters will produce the feature.
The script chronicles seven pivotal days in a man’s life during the course of 20 years, with each segment of the film beginning as he wakes up that day.
Ferris is waiting for the end of the strike to resume work on the script and hasn’t yet finalized which days of the lead character’s life will appear in the final version.
Waters is gearing up to direct Ghosts of Girlfriends Past, starring Jennifer Garner and Matthew McConaughey, for New Line.
