Hope youâ€™re all keeping warm.
â€œHarold & Kumarâ€ creator Jon Hurwitz tells me that â€“ well, besides hoping to film â€œA Very Harold & Kumar Christmasâ€ sometime this year â€“ heâ€™s about to embark on his first fully-fledged family comedy, the terrifically-titled â€œGrandma vs. Grandmaâ€ for Paramount.
The story revolves around two women with very different styles of child-rearing who babysit their grandkids for a month and compete for their affections.
â€œ[Itâ€™s] so different than Harold & Kumarâ€, says Hurwitz, who wrote the script with Hayden Schlossberg .â€œItâ€™s a huge family comedy meant for a big family audience, but with some bite. Itâ€™s more John Hughesian in certain ways, but with leads who are 60 year old womenâ€.
â€œHayden and I have loved developing that script with Douglas Wick, Lucy Fisher, and Rachel Shaneâ€ he adds.
Hurtwitz hopes the flick will develop as large a following as his stoner comedies have.
â€œIn some ways, it’ll kind of be for grandmothers, what Harold & Kumar was for Asian American’s. Instead of being side characters or the butt of the joke, in this movie, these grandmothers take center stage.â€
Itâ€™ll still be a while off before we see â€œGrandma vs. Grandmaâ€, but Hurwitz promises it is inching forward. â€œVery soon we’ll be handing in a draft that Doug and Lucy can use to start putting the movie together… hoping it can get up and running sometime this year.â€
