Director Will Gluck is poised to tackle decidedly different material than that of his previous films. Gluck has found success with the highly entertaining, pop culture-infused pics Easy A and Friends with Benefits, but he’s now attached to direct a slightly darker film. THR reports that Gluck is attached to helm a remake of the 2006 Swiss drama Vitus, called How to Disappear Completely. The story centers on “an academic and music prodigy who suffers under the constant scrutiny of his over-protective parents. His life takes a dramatic turn after an accident causes him to revert back to ‘normal’ intelligence.” Ed Solomon (Men in Black) wrote the script, but Gluck is expected to develop a draft of his own. Hit the jump for more, including the trailer for Vitus.

I was taken aback by how much I enjoyed Easy A and, particularly, Friends with Benefits. Gluck has a knack for fun dialogue, and it’ll be interesting to see how his talents translate to more dramatic fare. He recently signed on to direct an action comedy called Secretaries Day from Iron Man 3 scribe Drew Pearce, so it looks like he’s capitalizing on his box office (and critical) success by branching out. Whichever project goes first, I’m eager to see Gluck’s next film. Watch the trailer for Vitus below.
