Hannah Marks to helm 'American High' YA comedy 'The Swimsuit Issue'
The movie is about a nerdy high schooler's attempt to create a “Swimsuit Issue” featuring his high school classmates to get enough money to go to summer camp.
Hot off their premiere of 'Banana Split' at the LA Film Festival, Hannah Marks and 'American High' will be teaming up again on the award-winning Black List script 'The Swimsuit Issue.'
The list is an annual survey of the "most liked motion picture screenplays not yet produced," according to Wikipedia.
The 'Banana Split' star, co-writer and producer will be directing the script written by Randall Green (Billions). George Heller will produce alongside Jeremy Garelick and Will Phelps from 'American High.'
This has been a busy year for Marks as she recently co-wrote and co-directed comedy drama film 'After Everything' with Joey Power, starring Jeremy Allen White and Maika Monroe, which first premiered to critical praise at SXSW earlier this year. The film is now in limited theaters across the country, having opened on Friday.
'The Swimsuit Issue' tells the story of a nerdy high schooler, who fancies himself as an amateur photographer, attempting to create a “Swimsuit Issue” featuring his high school classmates in hopes of raising enough money to go to summer camp.
The film will continue the partnership between Garelick’s 'American High' and Mickey Liddell’s LD Entertainment. LD will fully finance the film.
