Mottola wrote the screenplay, which revolves around a water park in 1987. The film will follow the adventures of an uptight college graduate who is forced to take a minimum-wage job at a local amusement center. Reynolds is set to play Connell, an aspiring rock star that all of the local kids look up to.
Kristen Stewart and Jesse Eisenberg will also star in the comedy. Shooting is scheduled to begin in Pittsburgh next month.
