'Project X' Sequel: Writer Michael Bacall Working On Another Film Despite Dismal Reviews

Apparently Michael Bacall is happy with his "party film for a new generation," because the writer is now penning a "Project X" sequel.

The film, which opened to $21 million over the weekend, focuses on three high school outcasts (Thomas Mann of "It's Kind of a Funny Story" and industry newcomers Oliver Cooper, and Jonathan Brown) who throw a wild party in hopes of ending senior year with a bang and winning over the girls of their dreams.

Despite its box office success, "Project X" earned a measly 28% score on Rotten Tomatoes, with the New York Post's Sara Stewart saying it "all amounts to an hour and a half of what should be a five-minute scene in a movie where things actually happen."

The "Project X" sequel is still in its early days, so while it's unclear whether the original cast will return, it's hard to imagine Mann, Cooper, and Brown wouldn't want to come back for more raucous fun.
