Amaze Your Friends and Home School: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Jim Krieg has signed a deal to write two projects at Warner Bros. Pictures. He has been hired to rewrite "Amaze Your Friends," being produced by Bernie Goldman. "Amaze" is described as a high-concept fantasy comedy. Steve Kerper wrote the original draft.
Warners also snagged "Home School," a pitch from Krieg that he will co-write with scribe Lon Diamond. Set during a teachers strike that closes down the local school, the story centers on a father who becomes a teacher to his own bickering brood. Andrew Deane is producing through Industry Entertainment.
