Think the guys in “The Hangover” had it rough? That’s nothing compared to what unfolds for the teens of the upcoming Todd Phillips produced, found footage style, R-rated comedy “Project X.” And from the looks of it, it’ll make Will Ferrell‘s streaking in “Old School” look positively quaint.
Made on a shoestring budget of $12 million, commercial helmer Nima Nourizadeh directs a cast of mostly unknowns (Miles Teller of “Rabbit Hole” might be the biggest one of the bunch), and this one fully wearing it’s R-rating as a badge of honor (take that Sly!). Warner Bros. is still keeping the exact details of the story under wraps, but needless to say, this is one party with enough babes and booze to last a whole summer long. And with fire, midgets and tasers, it very quickly gets way out of hand. But it has the kind of fresh energy “The Hangover Part II” was sorely lacking, so we’re definitely optimistic that this can deliver the raunchy goods.
