David Katzenberg to direct <strong><em>From Mia with Love</em></strong>
David Katzenberg will direct the coming-of-age comedy From Mia with Love for 20th Century Fox.

Katzenberg co-wrote the script, which is said to be in the vein of early John Hughes, with Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter scribe Seth Grahame-Smith, Bryan Shukoff, and Kevin Chesley.

The story of From Mia with Love revolves around three high school buddies who are so anxious to lose their virginity that they send away for a Russian mail-order bride. The bride arrives with no intentions of sleeping with the teenagers, or ever going home due to some excess baggage she has been carrying.

From Mia with Love will go into production before the end of the year for a proposed 2012 release date.
