Documentary filmmaker Seth Gordon has been tapped to direct Columbia Pictures' coming-of-age drama "The Only Living Boy in New York."
Scoring success with his documentary feature "The King of Kong" which became one of this year's Slamdance hits, Seth Gordon is now taking larger project in his hand as he has successfully been picked up to direct "The Only Living Boy in New York" for Columbia Pictures.
A coming-of-age drama, the flick concerns a recent college graduate who is seduced by his father's mistress. No word yet on the cast lineup, but it has been confirmed that "Things We Lost in the Fire" scribe Allan Loeb is onboard to pen the script.
Filling the producers' seats are Bona Fide Productions' execs Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa, who both recently produced Oscar-winning movie "Little Miss Sunshine" for Big Beach Films, with John Fogel serving as the executive producer.
