Greg Mottola’s Adventureland is scheduled to hit theaters later this Summer, but everyone is wondering what the SuperBad director might be doing next. Mottola revealed at a Tribeca Film Festival sponsored Apple Store event that he’s writing a script with Bill Hader (who played a cop in SuperBad and is the owner of the amusement park in Adventureland).
“We’re writing a comedy about a doorman who, while watching all the comings and goings in his building, figures out that one of his tenants is the victim of a scam. And no one believes him, and no one cares,” Mottola explained. “So it’s basically a parody of vigilante movies. He’s going to right a wrong. He’s a man against the system, a lone wolf trying to fight crime. And we are writing it kind of as a parody of movies like Get Carter or Point Blank, with a little bit of Bourne Identity… in there. The big question right now is whether of not Bill will have a mustache. That’s what we spend most of our days trying to figure out.”
