After directing American Reunion and writing A Very Harold & Kumar Christmas, Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg have settled on their next project.  Nearly a year ago, we reported that Hurwitz and Schlossberg were eyeing the R-rated comedy Cherries as a directorial vehicle.  Now Deadline reports that Hurwitz and Schlossberg have officially signed on to direct the project for Good Universe, with production set to begin early next year.

The story centers on three dads who are determined to stop the pact their daughters made to lose their virginity on prom night.  The premise easily lends itself to some promising hijinks assuming the right cast is assembled, and Hurwitz and Schlossberg certainly have experience in the R-rated comedy department.  The duo will also do a pass on the existing script by Brian and Jim Kehoe and are producing alongside the This Is the End team of Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg.
