Margot Robbie is in negotiations to executive produce and star as a fourth-grade teacher in the comedy “Fools Day” for New Line. The project is a feature remake of Cody Blue Snider’s short film of the same name.
The short follows a fourth-grade class that accidentally kills their teacher when they play an innocent April Fool’s Day prank on her. Convinced they’ll go to prison if anyone finds out, they try to hide her body before a police officer arrives for their anti-drug lesson.
If Robbie’s deal goes through, she will star as the teacher in what’s described as a supporting role. Bill Migliore, Edward Norton, and John Rickard will produce.
Snider will direct the full-length feature from a script he penned with Shane Snider and Keatyn Lee.
