“You Again” director Andy Fickman might just be going from one multigenerational romp to another. With his Kristen Bell-Jamie Lee Curtis-Sigourney Weaver-Betty White comedy due for release this Friday (9/24), the prolific moviemaker tells us he has a Billy Crystal picture in the works.
“Billy is one of my favorite comedic actors. I know he’s been so busy – directing, doing his book, his Broadway show – but speaking purely as a fan, I really want to see him back on the big screen again,” says Fickman.
He’s awaiting a rewrite now from Lowell Ganz and Babaloo Mandel on the ye- untitled Crystal film he describes as “tonally very much like ‘Parenthood.’ It has to do with how we treat our parents, and how our parents treat us as well. It’s going to be fun.”
Fun, too, was the process of making “You Again,” he wants us to know. The movie has Bell and Curtis having to confront their nightmare high school adversaries — Odette Yustman and Sigourney Weaver – as new members of their family.
