They Tried To Make Fox Go To Rehab

Apologies for the out-of-date cultural reference in the headline, but we're only human, and it turns out that 20th Century Fox is planning to make a film called Rehab, so we couldn't resist.

The script was written by Sam Laybourne (a sometime-Arrested Development writer, folks) and tells the story of a man who goes into rehab under false pretences to try to reconnect with the girl he loved in high school, now a rock star in rehab for, well, being a rock star.

Will Gluck, director of Fired Up! and the currently-in-post-production Easy A, is producing and may direct the film, although that's not set yet. Since the only rehab movie in recent memory was Sandra Bullock's 28 Days (not to be confused with the one with the infected), it's probably about time that a rehab comedy came out, however potentially sensitive the subject matter.
