Neil Patrick Harris to direct indie comedy with Emma Roberts and Josh Hutcherson
Posted by: Nathan Swank
Neil Patrick Harris just might be the most fabulous man in Hollywood. He seems to dabble in just about everything and does it amazingly. He has acted on TV, film and stage. He sings, dance and happens to be the best awards host alive. Now the hilarious How I Met Your Mother star will try his hand at directing. The NPH will make his feature film directing debut with the indie comedy AARON AND SARAH. Upcoming stars Emma Roberts (VALENTINE’S DAY, SCREAM 4) and Josh Hutcherson (THE KIDS ARE ALL RIGHT, RED DAWN) have already signed on as the leads.
The title could be called Four Proms and a Funeral as it follows the growing relationship of a nerdy guy and popular female through their four years of high school. Harris is pretty much great at everything he does so I have no doubt he will be successful at directing as well. I remember catching an interview with him post Doogie Howser but pre HAROLD AND KUMAR stardom. He was promoting his Broadway performance on Rent and I thought, this guy is charismatically hilarious. Why is he not more famous? I’m glad others took note.
