Andy Fickman talks upcoming projects

Movie Mikes caught up with “Race to Witch Mountain” and “You Again” director Andy Fickman to talk about the latter, a new laffer starring Kristen Bell and Sigourney Weaver, and got the dirt on the filmmaker’s next flicks…. and theatre projects (!).

Pool Rats

Yeah, it is a project that is very near and dear to me called “Pool Rats”. It is something I am in the process of co-writing with my “The Game Plan” writers, Kathryn Price and Nichole Millard. It is something for me to direct and also produce. It is a true story, very personal, about a summer when I was a swim team coach in Houston shortly after my father passed away. It is a coming of age/feel good movie. I am really passionate about it.

Solstice

It is a really cool project that I am working on as a writer and a producer. I am working with Marty Bowen and John Goldstone. It is a supernatural adult thriller and it is based on a original idea. It has been a great project to work on so far.

Heathers & Dennis the Menace musicals

“Heathers” we have been working on for a while now with the original creators Daniel Waters and Larry O’ Keefe, who got a Tony nomination for “Legally Blonde” on Broadway and Kevin Murphy who did the music for “Reefer Madness”. We have been having a great time. We are doing a concert reading real soon. With “Dennis the Menace” we are also work with Kevin Murphy. While putting this project together, it has really proven to be a really fun family musical. We just did a stage reading in Seattle that went phenomenal. We are now in negotiations with a theater for a potential launch next summer.
