Justin Long is "Accepted" by Universal

by | June 29, 2005 | Comments

Justin Long ("Dodgeball") will star in a comedy entitled "Accepted" for Universal Pictures, says The Hollywood Reporter. The spec script, which was written by Mark Perez ("The Country Bears," "Herbie: Fully Loaded"), caused a rather enthusiastic bidding frenzy among several studios, but Uni snatched the prize and hired Steve Pink (co-writer of "High Fidelity" and "Grosse Pointe Blank") to direct the flick.

The plot focuses on "a high school senior who finds a unique way to avoid the pressure to attend college," and that’s all we’re getting so far, story-wise.
