"Old School" director Todd Phillips will serve as producer while eyeing to take the director's seat in Warner Bros. Pictures and Alcon Entertainment's new comedy "The Chadster."
Already assigned to both write and direct "Old School Dos", Todd Phillips appears to still have his way wandering for another big screen project as the man is set to produce a comedy flick titled "The Chadster" with an eye to also direct.
A joint production of Warner Bros. Pictures and Alcon Entertainment, the project concerns a best man who finds his position threatened when an eccentric, long-lost childhood friend shows up at the wedding and causes all sorts of trouble. Working on the script is Michael Samonek, who will pen it based on his original pitch.
Meanwhile, Phillips reportedly will produce via his Warners-based Todd Phillips Company with Senior VP of production Scott Budnick executive producing. The New York-born filmmaker previously assumed triple job as writer, director, and producer for The Weinstein Co.'s "School for Scoundrels", a 2006 remake of the 1960 British movie of the same name.
