It seems an old Paramount project is getting new life at Fox and a new director as well. Risky Business Blog is reporting that Andy Fickman will direct the film Us & Them.

Billy Crystal is attached to both star in and produce the film, which has been in development at Paramount for several years now and was recently removed from active development. Crystal and the writers, Joe Syracuse and Lisa Addario moved the film over to Fox when Fickman joined the project.

The film centers on how the ideal of parenthood changes between generations. Crystal will play a grandfather who is babysitting his grandkids while their mother takes a vacation and tries to adapt to 21st Century parenting ways, but ends up instilling old-school discipline with his grandkids.
