Josh Schwartz Branches Out With Film About Teenagers
Schwartz will direct and serve as producer under his Fake Empire banner with partner Stephanie Savage. This project comes on the heels of Fake Empire's announcement that they had secured the rights to Au Revoir, Crazy European Chick, which is maybe, just maybe, another teen movie as well. Actually, it's about a family that takes in an exchange student who takes in an exchange student who turns out to be an assassin. I wonder if she'll fall in love with the host family's awkward but goodhearted son!
Mr. Schwartz definitely has a type, though it seems, on the little information we have about both projects, that his theater fare is more broad and accessible than his TV shows about machiavellia high school juniors trying to "destroy" Blake Lively with needlessly complex plots. (Variety)
