According to The Hollywood Reporter, Paul Feig, the creator of Freaks and Geeks, has been hired to polish and direct Unaccompanied Minors for Warner Bros. Pictures. Minors is based on a Jan. 6, 2001, segment of This American Life.
In a nine-minute radio essay, Susan Burton recounted her childhood experience of being snowed in at Chicago's O'Hare International Airport the day after Christmas, stranded with other kids from divorced families who spent the holidays flying from one parent to the other. The kids end up bonding and create a makeshift holiday for one another.
The project is being described as The Breakfast Club at an airport.
