Those who can't do, teach. Or something.
While this may or may not be true (we like to believe it is not), one thing is certain: high school is a defining place for many of us, whether as a student, a teacher, or a student returning as a teacher.
Which brings us to "The English Teacher," an upcoming flick set to star Julianne Moore, Nathan Lane and Greg Kinnear. The comedy will mark the feature directing debut of TV whiz kid Craig Zisk, who boasts an impressive list of small screen credits including "The Big C," "Nurse Jackie," and "Weeds," Deadline reports.
Penned by Dan and Stacy Charlton, the story follows a beloved high school English teacher whose repressed personal life is a stark contrast to the passion she exudes in the classroom. Her carefully constructed façade crumbles, however, when a former student — who's now a failed New York playwright — returns to her town, and she convinces him to mount his unproduced play at the high school.
With Nathan Lane playing the high school drama teacher, we can only use our powers of deductive reasoning to guess that Moore plays the schoolmarm in question.
Though something tells us she won't remain too matronly for long.
