Following the box office success of his first feature, A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas director Todd Strauss-Schulson has signed on to direct Final Girls. Variety has the word, saying that the New Line horror comedy is described as a combination between Back to the Future and Friday the 13th.
In the film, from screenwriters Mark Fortin and Josh Miller (who were previously involved with Robert Rodriguez’s seemingly defunct “Women in Chains!” television series), a teenage girl and her friends are sucked into the ’80s slasher film that her mother starred in.
Strauss-Schulson was also recently linked to the Warner Bros. comedy Family Getaway. Whether or not this project replaces that one remains to be seen but Family Getaway is likely to be able to move forward sooner than Final Girls, which is still in the scripting stages.
