Will Reiser To Rewrite Young@Heart
Working Title remake of acclaimed doc

16 November 2009  |  Written by Chris Hewitt  |  Source: The Hollywood Reporter

Working Title has brought Will Reiser on board to rewrite Young@Heart, their narrative-based remake of the acclaimed documentary of the same name.

Directed by Stephen Walker, the 2007 documentary told the story of an OAP choir who, inspired by their younger choir leader, made a name for themselves by reinterpreting classic rock songs, by bands like Coldplay and The Clash.

It’s an idea that’s got enormous crowd-pleasing potential, something that Working Title recognised when they snapped up the rights in 2007.

Reiser, who’s hot at the moment because of his comedy script, I’m With Cancer, which has Seth Rogen attached and which is based on his own life, is the second writer on the project. Bob Nelson took a stab at an earlier draft.
