Production is underway on the comedy Unaccompanied Minors, directed by Paul Feig ("Freaks and Geeks") and starring Lewis Black ("The Daily Show with Jon Stewart"), Wilmer Valderrama ("That 70's Show"), Tyler James Williams ("Everybody Hates Chris") and Dyllan Christopher (Seabiscuit) for Warner Bros. Pictures in association with Village Roadshow Pictures. The announcement was made today by Jeff Robinov, President of Production, Warner Bros. Pictures.
It's Christmas Eve and five kids have just been snowed in at the airport -- and there isn't a parent in sight. Unaccompanied Minors follows awkward Spencer (Dyllan Christopher), rich-girl Grace (Gina Mantegna), tomboy Donna (Quinn Shephard), geeky Charlie (Tyler James Williams) and bashful Beef (Brett Kelly) as they try to outwit a disgruntled airport official (Lewis Black) and reunite with their families. Using "borrowed" golf-carts, a canoe on a snow hill and the help of a reluctant flight attendant (Wilmer Valderrama), these kids are about to prove the holidays aren't about where you are, but who you're with.
The comedy will also feature Rob Corddry ("The Daily Show with Jon Stewart") as Spencer's dad, as well as cameos by Donny Osmond ("Donny & Marie"), Al Roker ("Today"), Teri Garr ("Friends"), Jessica Walter ("Arrested Development"), Tony Hale ("Arrested Development"), Rob Riggle ("Saturday Night Live"), BJ Novak ("The Office"), David Koechner (Anchorman: The Legend of Ron Burgundy), Dave Gruber Allen ("The Naked Trucker") and comedian Nick Thune.
"Unaccompanied Minors" is produced by Lauren Shuler Donner (the X-Men franchise) and Michael Aguilar (Constantine) from a screenplay by Paul Feig and Kate Kondell (First Daughter) and Mya Stark & Jacob Meszaros. The executive producers are Ira Glass, Julie Snyder, Carrie Morrow ("Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang"), Michael Lambert and Bruce Berman (Charlie and the Chocolate Factory). The director of photography is Chris Baffa ("Nip/Tuck," Running With Scissors); the production designer is Aaron Osborne ("Kiss Kiss, Bang Bang") and the editor is George Folsey Jr. (The Pink Panther, Animal House).
