  • Screenwriters Jon Lucas and Scott Moore (The Hangover) have written a script called 21 and Over that’s currently out to directors. The movie — set up at Relativity Media and produced by Lorne Michaels — is about two college seniors who get their buddy wasted on his 21st birthday and embark on a Hangover-like journey through the University of Boulder before getting their friend to a med school exam the next morning. Vein of …. The Hangover.

  • Barry Levinson may be up for a directing gig for Old Timers, a project that’s been bouncing around for a while and that once had Jon Amiel (Entrapment) attached. Old Timers follows a 60-year-old hitman assigned to kill his partner and best friend after he botched up a hit. However, the two friends decide to have one last great night together doing things they’ve always wanted to do before the hit. I suppose it goes without saying that it’s in the vein of The Bucket List.

  • It looks like Breck Eisner is likely off The Brood, a remake of the 1979 Cronenberg flick. Spyglass Entertainment is currently searching for another director.

  • With The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo trilogy in the works, David Fincher has unnattached his name from Black Hole, a movie based on a Roger Avary and Neil Gaiman script, adapted from the Charles Burns’ graphic novel.

  • Copperheart Productions is developing Theorem, a horror movie based on a script by Vincenzo Natali (Splice) and Mike Finch (Greyskull). The movie is about a mathematician who discovers a genetic compound that cures his son of autism, but uh oh, it also turns him into a vessel for the devil.
