Joe Nussbaum directing B.F.F.

Ah, the first batch of births from Superbad’s fertile comedy loins: no, we don’t mean that anyone associated with that successful comedy is involved, nor whether it will actually be funny, but the new wave of raunchy comedies in the wake of the movie’s success is starting to arrive.

Joe Nussbaum – who we’re surprised still gets works after the floporamas that were Sleepover and this past weekend’s Sydney White – has agreed to direct B.F.F. for Rogue Pictures. The title refers – if your teenage years are but a distant, hazy memory – to “best friends forever” will follow the story of two friends – a bloke and a girl – across four years of school, various proms and, (apparently) a funeral, which always makes for hilarity, as they slowly become best friends and then fall in love.

Chad and Dara Resnik Creasey have written the script, and Nussbaum will start directing this winter, once he finds some willing stars.
