Alcon Entertainment is heading to high school, tapping Brian Dannelly to direct Suckers from Adrian Vina‘s script, reports Variety.
“Story centers on a high schooler who tries to become popular when he moves to a new school by telling everyone he’s a vampire. But he runs into trouble when he’s accused of a murder.”
Dannelly directed Chris Colfer of “Glee” in Struck by Lightning, which is making its world premiere next month at Tribeca in the Spotlight section. His smallscreen directing credits include the pilot of Showtime’s “Weeds,” as well as ABC’s “Pushing Daisies” and Showtime’s “United States of Tara.”
Alcon toppers Andrew Kosove and Broderick Johnson are producing.
