Superbad Helmer Next Sparking Adventureland


Director Greg Mottola will next direct a film feature entitled "Adventureland" for Miramax Films.

Hot off the huge commercial success of "Superbad", seems director Greg Mottola only takes a really short time to secure his next directorial stint after the comedy hit.

Variety has reported that the 43-year-old filmmaker has already secured deals to helm a new big screen feature titled "Adventureland" that Miramax Films is developing for Sidney Kimmel to produce.

Set in the summer of 1987, the project follows an uptight recent college grad as he is forced to take a minimum wage job at the local amusement park after realizing he cannot afford his dream European tour. The experience tuns out to help him loosen up a bit as he finds first love, forms new friendships, and matures just in time to enter the real world in the fall.

Shooting is said to begin this fall in Pittsburgh with Mottola to direct based on his own script and Jesse Eisenberg being attached to topline. Accompanied Kimmel on the producer's seat are Ted Hope and Anne Carey of This is That, a New York-based production company of which most recent release was Hal Hartley-directed action thriller "Fay Grim."
