JJ Abrams Is Hot For Teacher
Mini-mogul producing new comedy

25 April 2008  |  Written by Olly Richards  |  Source: Variety

JJ Abrams is very much like Google. Once you were only vaguely aware of his existence and now he seems to be taking over everything. Soon he may control you. The man currently resurrecting the Star Trek franchise has just bought Jay Dyer's script Hot For Teacher, which he plans to produce for Paramount.

The story centres on three high school boys who make a pact that they will have sex before they graduate, with one of them planning to seduce their comely teacher.

So, that's sci-fi, action, crazy TV shows, monster movies and comedy that Abrams has got covered. Next? We're putting our money on a period drama. With dinosaurs.
