Most people probably still think of Fred Savage as the kid from The Wonder Years and The Princess Bride, but in more recent years he’s had a successful career as a director, helming episodes of TV shows such as 2 Broke Girls and Modern Family amongst many others, as well as the movie Daddy Day Camp.
Now he’s got a feature film project, as he’s in talks to direct Ladies Night, which has Charlize Theron signed on to star and produce, according to THR.
Happy Endings creator David Caspe wrote the screenplay, which was developed at Charlize Theron’s Denver & Delilah company, along with Beth Kono and A.J. Dix. The movie is about a woman (Theron) who decides to start a new life in New York City, largely due to her boyfriend’s inability to commit to the relationship. She has one final night out on the town with her girlfriends before making the big move.
Shooting is tentatively slated to begin in early 2014.
