‘Mean Girls’ director signs on to helm ‘Magic Camp’

Mean Girls director Mark Waters has reportedly signed on to helm a movie about a banker who returns to magic-themed summer camp he attended as a kid.

Steve Martin has been in talks to star in the film, but none of the cast members have been confirmed for the Disney movie.

In addition to the 2004 comedy Mean Girls, Waters has also directed Freaky Friday and is directing the forthcoming sequel to Bad Santa.

Martin attended the now defunct Camp Osceola in California as a kid. His friend Morris Walker wrote about their time at the YMCA camp in the 2001 biography Steve Martin: The Magic Years.

Magic Camp is also the name of a 2012 documentary about Tannen’s Magic Camp, which is considered “the most prestigious magic institution in the world.”
