Josh Schwartz (Chuck, Gossip Girl, The O.C.) is set to produce a film called Fun Size written by Colbert Report scribe Max Werner for Paramount. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the plot is being kept under wraps but the movie has been described as “a cross between Superbad and Adventures in Babysitting that is set on Halloween.” Werner told the trade, “I grew up on John Hughes films and miss those great character-based comedies that make you feel something. Fun Size is about real characters who are smart, funny and a little bit offbeat.”
Guess the plot. I’m thinking two, possibly three, teen boys are forced to take someone’s younger siblings trick-or-treating. They can’t bring the kids home and head to the party they want to go to (so the boy who’ll be awesome when he’s in his 20s can get the girl) until the kids’ bags are full of candy. With people giving out Fun Size bars, this could take all night. At one house, they’re accidentally given something other than chocolate (drugs, if we’re going hard R), and whoever gave it to them chases them trying to get it back.
