Old School 2: According to Variety, director Todd Phillips is cranky over the fact that DreamWorks invoked pics Old School and Road Trip -- which he wrote and directed -- in the marketing of its latest frat fare, Eurotrip.

In response, he says he won't write or helm the sequel to Old School as was the plan. Although all three films share exec producers -- Montecito Pictures' Tom Pollock and Ivan Reitman -- Phillips had nothing to do with "Eurotrip." (Pic was directed by Jeff Schaffer.)

The "Eurotrip" poster specifies this distinction and reads: "From the producers of 'Road Trip' and 'Old School.' "

But Phillips says no matter. When reached by Daily Variety, he confirmed that "Old School 2" was a no go for him.
