New Regency Trying For Wright’s “Grasshopper”

New Regency is in final talks to acquire Edgar Wright’s upcoming film adaptation of Andrew Smith’s lauded 2014 young adult novel “Grasshopper Jungle”.

The story is set in a small Iowa town where a young man, Austin, struggles with sexual attraction to both his best friend Robbie and his girlfriend Shann Collins.

Austin and Robbie soon accidentally unleash an unstoppable army of horny, hungry, six-foot-tall praying mantises that only want to do two things.

Wright will direct the film from a script by Scott Rosenberg (“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle”), while Matt Tolmach and Nira Park will produce.

Wright’s “Baby Driver” will hit cinemas on June 28th.
