Slanted and Enchanted: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chris Columbus has closed a deal with Warner Bros. Pictures to develop and direct Slanted and Enchanted, based on a script by Ben Queen.

"Slanted" is described as a dramedy about a recovered pathological liar who must return home and interact with his parents in order to unravel the mystery of his sister's illness. Things spiral out of control, though, as he falls into self-destructive patterns.

The project is said to have some magical elements at the center of the story, similar to the ones Columbus explored in directorial outings Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone and Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets.
