Paul Feig to helm female engineer comedy “Turned On” for Fox

PanARMENIAN.Net - “Ghostbusters” director Paul Feig has come on board to helm female engineer movie comedy “Turned On” for Fox, Variety reports.

The studio has picked up a script by Charlie Kesslering, an assistant to host James Corden on “The Late Late Show With James Corden.” He’s a former CAA assistant.
