Walk Hard helmer directs comedy Bad Teacher

Walk Hard director Jake Kasdan has signed on to helm the comedy “Bad Teacher”.

Gene Stupnitsky and Lee Eisenberg – the duo behind the much anticipated Ghostbusters 3 screenpay, sold their original screenplay to Columbia Pictures last August.

The plot follows a foul-mouthed seventh grade teacher who is dumped by her sugar daddy and starts to pursue a colleague, which provokes conflict with the school’s model teacher.

Jimmy Miller is producing; Sony’s Jonathan Kadin and Doug Belgrad are overseeing for the studio.
