Phil Claydon to Helm Badass


British helmer Phil Claydon (Lesbian Vampire Killers) has signed on to direct New Line comedy Dan Mintner: Badass for Hire, says The Hollywood Reporter.

“Badass” centers on a tight-jeans-wearing, matchstick-chewing man stuck with an ’80s mentality while kicking some modern-day butt.

New Line picked up the script–written as a spec by Chad Kultgen–last year as its first acquisition after entering the Warner Bros. fold.
