Kaplan and Elfont Helming Big Man on Campus


Made of Honor screenwriters Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont have signed on to rewrite and direct the teen comedy Big Man on Campus for Columbia Pictures.

The story kicks off when the most popular girl in school is unexpectedly rejected by the nerdiest guy. Her social status drops, his rises, and the rules of popularity shift for the entire school.

Gina Wendkos wrote an earlier draft based on her own pitch. Hal Lieberman (Bridge to Terabithia) is producing.

Mark Teitelman had been attached to direct the film.
