Back to investigate the pathos of adolescence, Todd Graff has come onboard to both re-write and direct an coming-of-age drama comedy entitled "Will (2009)" for Walden Media, The Hollywood Reporter has learned.
Originally penned by Josh Kagan, the flick revolves around a high school outcast and a popular girl who form an unlikely bond through their shared love of music, later even joining the bands competition at their school after forming a rock group consisting a like-minded crew of misfits. No words yet on either cast lineup or production schedule so far.
Graff, best known for his 2003 independent feature "Camp", is also recognized as an actor who has appeared in a number of movies like "The Abyss", "City of Hope", and "Death to Smoochy." His other writing works include those for "The Vanishing", "Fly by Night", and "The Crowded Room."
