Jon Kasdan will write and direct The First Time
Writer-director Jon Kasdan has set up his next project: the teen romance The First Time for Castle Rock Entertainment, according to Risky Business.

Jon Kasdan wrote and will direct The First Time, which focuses on the first weekend in the blooming love between a boy and a girl in high school.

"This is a traditional high school romance that you don't see a lot of right now," says Jon Kasdan. "It's not broad comedy, it's not real serious, either. It's in that Say Anything kind of genre that is rare these days. I wanted to see a movie like that, so I thought I'd write one."

Casting is underway now for a planned late-spring shoot in L.A.
