Phil Claydon has signed on to direct Dan Minter: Badass for Hire for New Line Cinema.
The comedy is described as a light-hearted homage to 1980s action thrillers such as Cobra and Missing in Action. Badass centers on a tight-jeans-wearing, matchstick-chewing man stuck with an ’80s mentality while kicking some modern-day butt. New Line picked up the script — written as a spec by Chad Kultgen — last year as its first acquisition after entering the Warner Bros. fold.
