In a story from Variety, Universal Pictures has grabbed an untitled pitch from scribes Alan Cohen and Alan Freedland (Due Date directed by Todd Phillips).
Imagine Entertainment's Brian Grazer is going to produce.
The story of the pitch follows a man who was not popular as a kid. He goes home and is thought to be a popular classmate. He then gets to relive his youth as he is now the toast of the town.
"In Due Date, we focused on the birth of a first child, and here, it is the high school experience, which forged this guy's limited future," Cohen said.
"The early Imagine comedies like Splash and Night Shift were the reason we came here, so it was gratifying that Brian responded to the material." Freedland stated.
