Screenwriter Antwone Fisher, who chronicled his harrowing childhood and troubled youth in the self-titled Fox Searchlight feature, is turning to comedy for his next project: an untitled feature set up at New Line Cinema with producer Robert Simonds finalizing his deal to produce. The project, described as Big Daddy meets Problem Child (both Simonds-produced features), is set in the world of foster care and revolves around the comedic dynamic between a foster child and his unqualified caretaker. Fisher, who grew up in foster care, will draw on some of the real goings-on in foster care for the script. The project is designed as a starring vehicle for a black star.
