Paramount Pictures has bought the comedy spec script Fun Size from writer Max Werner (“The Colbert Report”) for Josh Schwartz to produce.
The film is described as a cross between Superbad and Adventures in Babysitting. It is set on Halloween.
“‘Fun Size’ is exactly the kind of project we’re targeting at Paramount: funny, smart and surprisingly emotional,” Schwartz said.
Said Werner: “I grew up on John Hughes films and miss those great character-based comedies that make you feel something. ‘Fun Size’ is about real characters who are smart, funny and a little bit offbeat.”
