In a story from Variety, it looks like Fox Searchlight has tapped Marc Webb to direct The Spectacular Now. The film is based on a book by Tim Tharp.

The screenplay is being adapted by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber.

The film follows a party guy who has his world upended when he strikes up a relationship with a girl who isn't like him.

"It's somewhere between Sideways, Catcher in the Rye and Ferris Bueller's Day Off" stated producer Tom McNulty. "It's a heartbreaking story about a kid who realizes his youth is about over."
