Josh Hutcherson Thrown In Detention
A horror comedy with Dane Cook

01 August 2010  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Variety

You’ve got to feel for Josh Hutcherson. He comes so very close to winning the coveted lead role in the Spider-Man reboot, only to be pipped at the post by Andrew Garfield. And now what’s he doing? Starring in a horror comedy called Detention with Dane Cook. Hooray…

But wait! It could be good: the indie pic’s plot will apparently feature Hutcherson as one of a group of teens who have to survive their final year of high school. Trouble is, there’s a killer movie character who appears to have come to life and is stalking the kids.

All right, so it sounds like a dodgy, too-late take on Scream, but perhaps the director’s talented? It’s… Joseph Kahn, who shot some amazing music videos like Eminem’s Without Me and then burst on to the filmmaking scene with Torque, which led to a grand total of zero other movie making jobs in the years that followed. Oh, Detention – you just keep letting us down at every turn, don’t you?

Hutcherson will report to the set later this month, and then he’s literally burying his Spider-woes deep beneath the soil as he suits up to take the main role in the Journey to the Center of the Earth sequel.
