I’ve been a Jake Kasdan fan ever since I got to see The TV Set at the Austin Film Festival a few years back. Even if Walk Hard had more than a few missteps, it had its share of fun moments, and I think he’s a talented comedic director that just needs to find the right projects.

Hopefully, he’s found one with the original screenplay penned by Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg, two writers on “The Office” who are also writing/producing Ghostbusters III (if the world doesn’t end in 2012).

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the script for Bad Teacher focuses on a “foul-mouthed” teacher who romantically pursues one of her colleagues.

Kasdan has signed on to direct the project for Columbia – and it looks like this might be the right brand of intimate story that works best for his style.

No word yet on casting since it’s still early in the ball game. Any chance Kristin Wiig could carry a film like this as the star?

What do you think?
