Logan Lerman has signed on to star in The Only Living Boy in New York for director Seth Gordon (Four Christmases). According to Deadline, the indie drama (written by The Dilemma screenwriter Allan Loeb) “is a twisted coming of age tale in which a young man (Lerman) learns that his overbearing father is having an affair. The son tries to stop it, only to become involved with the woman as well. With advice from a questionable quirky neighbor, the young man learns about love.” Ugh. Because the premise isn’t quirky faux-drama enough, let’s throw in a quirky neighbor who gives advice.
Lerman will next be seen in the atrocious-looking 3D adaptation of The Three Musketeers. He’s also set to star in an adaptation of The Perks of Being a Wallflower opposite Emma Watson. As for Gordon, his new film Horrible Bosses, opens July 8th.
