Seth Grahame-Smith sells pitch for FROM MIA WITH LOVE
There's a good chance that if you're reading this site, you're pretty excited for the upcoming adaptation of ABRAHAM LINCOLN, VAMPIRE HUNTER. The film is a geek dream, and it all seems to be working out pretty successfully. It seems as if the team behind the film has both a solid cast and a really good production staff on-board that will lead the film into success.
Now the writer of the film is working on a new project. Novelist and screenwriter Seth Grahame-Smith has sold a pitch to 20th Century Fox for a John Hughes-inspired film called FROM MIA WITH LOVE.
The film follows three friends who order a mail order bride who, upon arrival, declines to have sex with them. Instead, she trains them in the art of getting girls, and all four of them find a place of common ground. The plot does give me a WIERD SCIENCE kind of vibe, and that is something that I can certainly get behind. They key will be some deep characterization and making the characters relatable - which was how John Hughes was so successful.
I'm always ready for another John Hughes style film, and Grahame-Smith might just be the right person to make this film good. It is being co-written by David Katzenberg, Bryan Shukoff, and Kevin Chesley, with Katzenberg directing.
Are you guys excited to see FROM MIA WITH LOVE?
