L.A.-based film company Walden Media is on the track to develop a teen mayor comedy with Ken Kwapis to direct.
Widely recognized for its productions of fantasy and family-friendly flicks, Walden Media now is aiming to spawn a rather different film feature.
The Los Angeles-based company reportedly is on the track to develop a teen mayor comedy in association with Phoenix Pictures and has appointed "License to Wed" director Ken Kwapis to assume the helming duties for the project.
Story revolves around a high school slacker who decides to run for mayor to pad his college application credentials and then unexpectedly wins the office. Assigned to work on the script are "Surf's Up" writing duo Lisa Addario and Joe Syracuse while Phoenix's Mike Medavoy and Arnie Messer will both serve as producers.
