Jonathan Levine Hires A “Sitter”

Jonathan Levine (“The Wackness”) is set to direct the irreverent comedy “The Sitter” for Fox Atomic says The Hollywood Reporter.

Though not a remake of 1987 comedy classic “Adventures in Babysitting”, the story is obviously inspired by that as it follows a college student, suspended for the semester and living back at home with his single mom.

He soon has a night to remember when he gets talked into baby-sitting the eccentric kids next door — two boys and a wild 8-year-old girl.

Brian Gatewood and Alessandro Tanaka wrote the screenplay while Michael De Luca is producing.
