Trick or treating has long been a Halloween tradition, and the beauty of the yearly holiday in general is that it can be hilarious, spooky, and fun all at the same time. That’s exactly what Paramount in banking on for its new upcoming look at All Saints Day, Fun Size.
According to The Hollywood Reporter Thomas Mann (It’s Kind of a Funny Story) is close to signing onto the Paramount Halloween comedy being described as a cross between Superbad and Adventures in Babysitting that is set on Halloween.
The comedic script, by Colbert Report scribe Max Werner, centers on a sarcastic teenage girl (Justice) who is forced to take her little brother trick-or-treating on Halloween, then loses him and must find him before their mother finds out.
Mann will be a potential love interest for Justice, playing a naive teen with two lesbians as parents who named him after Eleanor Roosevelt.
A spring shoot in Minnesota is being planned for what Paramount envisions to be a PG-13 project.
We don’t know exactly how much horror will be making it in with the comedy just yet so this may be the last you hear of the movie around these parts, but we’ll keep our ears to the ground for you.
