Nick Stoller (The Five-Year Engagement, Forgetting Sarah Marshall) is in negotiations to direct the collegiate comedy Townies for Universal Pictures, which already has Seth Rogen and Zac Efron onboard to star.
The film is about a family man (Seth Rogen), whose peaceful way of life is turned upside down by an obnoxious fraternity member (Zac Efron). The studio picked up the pitch from writers Andrew J. Cohen and Brendan O’Brien for seven figures last summer.
Seth Rogen is also producing alongside longtime collaborator Evan Goldberg, with Andrew J. Cohen, Brendan O’Brien, and James Weaver executive producing. It isn’t known when it might shoot. (Source: THR)
