Miguel Arteta Helms Youth in Revolt

Miguel Arteta (“Star Maps,” “The Good Girl”) is in final negotiations to direct “Superbad” star Michael Cera in the Dimension Films comedy “Youth in Revolt” says Reuters.

Based on C.D. Payne’s self-published novel, Cera will play Nick Twisp, a smart, sexually obsessed teen living in a world of moronic adults.

“Youth in Revolt” became a worldwide cult hit, spawning sequels, a play and numerous Web site tributes. Gustin Nash adapted the book for the screen.
