“Superbad” director Greg Mottola has signed on to direct his next film based on his own script for Sidney Kimmel Entertainment.
JoBlo.com reports that Mottola will next direct “Adventureland,” a period comedy set in the late-80s.
The film will tell the story of a college grad ready to summer in Europe before starting grad school. Only problem is his father just got laid off and now he’s stuck at home in Long Island.
