Josh Hutcherson may not have gotten the role of Peter Parker in the Spiderman Reboot but it would appear he doesn’t take defeat lying down. He is going to star and executive produce a teen horror titled Detention. As you can guess it takes place in school where seniors looking to just graduate must not fight to make it to graduation day. Oddly enough Dane Cook will also be starring in this film. It’s an odd casting choice, and I was a bit taken back since his films are not known for their huge success. The biggest successful film he did was Dan in Real Life and I didn’t even realize he was in it till I started watching it. Plus a comedian in a horror film isn’t the match up I would expect, or get excited about.
While this movie does appear to be campy on the surface we shall wait and see more before passing too much judgment. I’m not holding my breath for much though.
