‘Chuck’ Showrunner Set To Direct Halloween-Themed Comedy ‘Fun Size’

By  · Published on January 19th, 2011

As a note of caution, you should probably not google “Fun Size” with the safe search off, but if you haven’t (and your eyes still work properly), feast your virginal eyes on the news that Josh Schwartz will be directing a comedy set on Halloween night featuring a sarcastic young girl and her stupid brother that she’s forced to take trick ‘r treating.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the little brother goes missing, and his sister has to find him before mom finds out about it (and about the babysitter being dead).

Schwartz is the executive producer of Chuck, one of many co-writers on the X-Men: First Class script, and a musician whose work can be found on movies as diverse as Undercover Brother and Happy Feet. The point? The guy is awesome.

He’ll be producing under his Fake Empire banner alongside Paramount who wants it ready to roll by this Halloween despite not officially greenlighting it. The script was written by Max Werner – a writer on The Colbert Report – but no actors have been cast yet.
