After several failed attempts at drama (The Box comes to mind), Cameron Diaz is going back to the well. Back to the raunchy roots that helped launch her acting career with Columbia Pictures’ Bad Teacher.

Jake Kasdan (Walk Hard) will direct the flick, which was written by The Office scribes Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupinsky, says Variety. The story follows a foulmouthed, gold-digging middle school teacher who, after getting dumped by her boyfriend, competes with a colleague for the affections of the school’s model teacher.

We can only hope that Kasdan and Diaz are taking a page out of the Werner Herzog/Nic Cage book of making ‘Bad’ movies. I would like to see a sinister, drug-addled teacher who is fleecing students for pot and doing coke off the janitor’s broom-handle. I doubt that I will get my wish, but check me if I’m wrong when I say that movie would be awesome. Am I right?

Side Note: Based on my pitch, I would like to submit the following alternate title: Bad Teacher: Port of Call Theodore Roosevelt Middle School.
