Peter Berg Directing “Father’s Day”

Peter Berg (“Battleship”) is attached to direct “Father’s Day,” a film adaptation of the book by “Friday Night Lights” author (and Berg’s cousin) Buzz Bissinger reports Variety.

The story centers around Bissinger’s relationship with his twins, one of whom has serious intellectual handicaps. It chronicles a summer road trip taken by father and son and the personal journey that helps Bissinger better understand his child.

Berg has a first-look deal at Universal and the studio is said to be currently looking at the project.
