Project X follows a group of teenagers who document a crazy house party.
Right now, the producers are keeping a real tight lid on the story. Right now, the main thing I know about the story is that it’s told from the first person point of view of various characters. Whether that means you see literally through their eyes, or they’re holding the camera like Cloverfield. I don’t know.
No trailer yet.
Outside of a documentary called A, director Nima Nourizadeh doesn’t seem to have any experience behind the camera, but writer Michael Bacall did work on Scott Pilgrim vs. The World, and the other writer Matt Drake worked on… an episode of Spin City. And some movie called Tully. Don’t know about that one.

There was an 80’s film called Project X, starring Matthew Broderick as a military inductee tasked with looking after some monkeys who know sign language. Yaddi Yadda yadda, they’re being mistreated, and he saves them. This film is likely not a remake.
American Pie, Cloverfield, Porky’s
What’s Good About It?
Good high school comedies about parties going awry are usually pretty solid. Some are even classics, like Porky’s. Hell, if not for the bajillion sequels, American Pie might have been considered a classic.
But it’s not.
If Project X can have some of that magic, it might turn out pretty good.
What’s Bad About It?
I want to know more, specifically about the camera, as to whether or not the film will be through the character’s eyes or if they’re holding the camera. And a trailer would be nice to see the tone.
Our Clever Prediction
Too early to say. If there’s some magic, it could make a ton of money. No magic on the other hand…
