Levy, Kasdan Are “Man Made”

21 Laps Entertainment and Fox 2000 have acquired film rights to Joel Stein’s upcoming book “Man Made” and Jake Kasdan (“Bad Teacher”) is in talks to direct says EW.

The story is a nonfiction account of the author’s efforts to mentally and physically test himself in ways he’s never had to before so he can be a better role model for his infant son.

These include riding along on a shift with firefighters, taking on an MMA fighter, going through Marine basic training, and consulting with various tough guys about what it means to be a modern American male. Kasdan, Dan Levine and Shawn Levy are set to produce.
