A Very Harold And Kumar 3D Christmas Director To Helm Horror Comedy Final Girls image
The period after the release of a director's first film must be nerve-wracking. Unless they have set something up before hand, there's constant anticipation about when the phone might ring with a second gig. One can only guess that's been the situation for Todd Strauss-Schulson since November 4th when A Very Harold and Kumar 3D Christmas hit theaters. While not a smash hit blockbuster (none of the Harold and Kumar movies really fit that bill), the film made a descent sum in it's opening weekend - pulling in $12 million of its $19 million budget - and even the critics got behind it, leading to a 72% score on Rotten Tomatoes. Fortunately Strauss-Schulson's wait is over: he has a new project.

Variety reports that the filmmaker is attached to direct Final Girls, a horror comedy that's being backed by New Line, the subsidiary of Warner Bros. that covered the director's first film. The story follows a young girl named Max who is grief stricken when her mother, a notable scream queen from the 80s, dies. In a science fiction/fantasy twist, Max and some of her friends are then sucked into the mother's most famous horror movie where they must fight to survive. The project is described as being a mix of Back to the Future and Friday The 13th. The script was written by Mark Fortin and Josh Miller, who are currently working on a new draft of their original spec script.

This project actually sounds like it could be a lot of fun. Who doesn't want to see a horror version of The Last Action Hero? My hope is that they plan to go after a real 80s scream queen for the mom role. My vote? Jaime Lee Curtis.
