Neil Patrick Harris to direct his first feature film

Posted on

You can soon add “feature film director” to Neil Patrick Harris’ already crowded resume. The How I Met Your Mother star (and Emmy host, and Rent director) is aiming to make his feature directorial debut with the romantic comedy Aaron and Sarah, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Emma Roberts and Josh Hutcherson are also attached to star in the independent film, which follows the friendship of two teenagers through their four years of high school. Originally titled B.F.F., the project reportedly had David O. Russell attached to direct before Harris.
