Phil Claydon (“Lesbian Vampire Killers”) has been hired to direct “Miserable Excuse For A Hero” for Mandate Pictures says Deadline.
The story follows a 30-year-old part-time actor/full-time waiter who goes on a date with a girl he kind of likes. The next day, he’s awakened by a phone call from kidnappers who tell him they have his girlfriend, and will kill her if he doesn’t come up with $50,000 in ransom.
Considering he barely knows the girl, he’s conflicted. D.V. De Vincentis penned this adaptation of Bob Powers’ comic novel “You Are A Miserable Excuse For A Hero”.
Mark Gordon and Jennifer Todd are producing.
