Fixing eyes on the young generation, Cuba Gooding Jr. is attached to star in while going to produce an edgy teen comedy simply entitled "Harold", a collaborative production of City Lights Pictures and M.E.G.A Films.
Being aimed for a PG-13 rating, the project is said to center on a premature balding young teen who tries to adapt to a new high school. Gooding Jr. reportedly is poised to portray the school janitor who befriends and helps him through merciless teasing.
Shooting is due to begin this August in New York under the direction of veteran SNL writer T. Sean Shannon who will helm based on the script he worked on alongside Greg Fields. Producers are hoping to get the filming process finished in time for submission to the next year's Sundance Film Festival.
