Shawn Levy Taking "The Way Back"



Canadian filmmaker Shawn Levy has decided to make coming-of-age dramedy "The Way Back" as his next project after "Night at the Museum."

Well, seems the crew of "The Hardy Men" has to wait for unspecified time to get the high-profile project made as director Shawn Levy turns out to have another plan in his mind.

The Canadian filmmaker, who recently scored huge success with "Night at the Museum", has come up to a decision to make a different feature as his next effort instead, picking up a coming-of-age drama comedy "The Way Back", which he will develop for Fox Searchlight.

"It's very different from the movies that I've done, and that's exactly why I wanted to dive in," Levy commented. "It's an edgy, character-driven story."

Scheduled for a 2008 release, the flick depicts the adventures of a teenage boy who finds the courage to stand up to his aggressive stepfather, forms an unlikely friendship with the owner of a water park, and is able to finally reconnect with his mother. Levy reportedly is set to begin filming the movie in mid-June from script by Nax Faxon and Jim Rash.
