New Film Production Company Will Pump Out Comedies Set in High Schools Like It’s the ’80s

Because there are always people who need to grow up, I guess, a
new company called American High has been forged whose sole
mission is to generate comedies set in high schools.
Deadline reported on Wednesday that
The Hangover screenwriter Jeremy Garelick has teamed
up with LD Entertainment and $50 million in seed money to make
the films, the first of which is slated to begin shooting in
Garlelick said of the project, “the films that inspired me to
make a lot of terrible decisions in my youth just aren’t being
made anymore. Our goal with American High is to fill that void
and pollute the minds of the next generation.”
But also maybe it’s cause the productions company’s main asset
is a high school it purchased in Syracuse, New York, that will
serve as a setting for all its films.
I don’t mean to be all judgmental, but if you had truly
absorbed the ethos of quintessential ’80s American high school
cinema, and you now owned an entire high school, then
technically your only options would be to burn it down and have
sex in it, or to have sex in it and burn it down.
