The King of Kong director Seth Gordon not only has Horrible Bosses coming out later this year, but is already planning his follow-up to that film, an indie titled The Only Living Boy In New York. Deadline has just revealed that Percy Jackson and The Three Musketeers actor Logan Lerman has been cast in the lead role.
The movie is said to be a dark comedy, which they describe as following a young man who “learns that his overbearing father is having an affair,” which he “tries to stop, only to become involved with the woman as well;” he takes advice “from a questionable quirky neighbor,” and soon learns about love.
Production begins on the movie this fall, with Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps and The Dilemma screenwriter Allan Loeb behind the script. It’s being produced by Albert Berger and Ron Yerxa, with John Fogel executive producing. At the very least, I’m sort of excited that Gordon is branching out with his directing, as The King of Kong was one of my favorite movies of 2007.
Do you think that Lerman is a good lead for this film? Do you like seeing Gordon continue with narrative filmmaking?
