Things are looking pretty good for A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas director Todd Strauss-Schulson. Opening just last weekend, Strauss-Schulson‘s feature directorial debut managed to pull in over $16 million dollars thus far and was received rather positively by critics. According to THR, Warner Bros. hasn’t wasted much time planning his next feature project.
Strauss-Schulson is now in negotiations to direct Family Getaway, a comedy about a family who discovers their father is in fact an assassin. And when a rival killer shows up at their door, their family vacation turns into a cross-country car chase. Jeremiah Friedman and Nick Palmer wrote the initial story and Nick Kasdan also worked on the script back when he was attached to direct.
For those familiar with the Harold & Kumar movies, you know just how ridiculous the plots can get. For his feature debut, Strauss-Schulson did a pretty good job directing all the action sequences as well as the various illegal “down time” Harold and Kumar are known for. Family Getaway sounds like a fun and great opportunity for Strauss-Schulson to showcase his directing style and further his career. Strauss-Schulson has directed various comedy shorts, including Mano-a-Mano, Sorority Pillow Fight and his upcoming The Master Cleanse.
