McG protege Anna Mastro has just signed on to the Lizzy Weiss script Bumped, which will mark her directing debut. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bridget Johnson will produce the comedy-drama, which is being called a modern-day version of John Hughes' classic film The Breakfast Club.
Bumped centers on five young adults in their twenties, including a corporate go-getter, a musician, and a flirt. While the five strangers normally wouldn't be friends, they get to know one another when they're bumped from a flight and wind up stranded at Chicago's O'Hare Airport.
Filming for Bumped is not scheduled to start until the SAG strike situation has been resolved.
