Neil Patrick Harris

He's been nominated for an Emmy and hosted the television awards ceremony, not to mention giving some life to the Tony awards as master of ceremonies, but his comeback started after leaving love stains in the backseat of a car in Harold & Kumar. Now Neil Patrick Harris is taking a seat in the director's chair as Risky Biz reports Harris will helm Aaron and Sarah, an indie about a geeky guy (Josh Hutcherson of The Kids Are All Right) and a popular girl (Emma Roberts of Valentine's Day) who become friends as freshmen in high school and see their relationship deepen through the four years, four proms and one funeral before graduation.

The script comes from Chad Gomez Creasey and Dara Resnik Creasey (who previously worked on "Pushing Daisies") and was purchased on spec years ago. Apparently David O. Russell was attached to direct the film early last year, and before that Joe Nussbaum (Sydney White) was developing it. The project doesn't have a studio home yet, but with the young, upcoming  talent attached to star and Harris' starpower bringing the film some attention, it shouldn't be a problem. Maybe we'll even see the film show up on the festival circuit next year. If Harris can pull this off, there really seems to be no limit to his talents in this industry. Interested?
