Gordon’s past credits include the Jason Bateman and Melissa McCarthy starrer Identify Thief, Four Christmases, and gamer documentary The King of Kong. He has also worked extensively in television, directing episodes of Modern Family, Community, The Goldbergs and The Jim Gaffigan Show.
Paramount is hoping that Gordon will breathe new life into the long-gestating project, which was originally in development at DreamWorks in 2004. Several different directors have been attached and dozens of writers, with Damian Shannon & Mark Swift penning the latest draft.
