Topher Grace Plays With "Kids In America"

According to Variety, former "That 70's Show" star Topher Grace is working overtime for "Kids in America," a film that follows one night in the lives of a group of recent college grads.

Grace and producing partner Gordon Kaywin pitched their idea for the film to Brian Grazer ("The Da Vinci Code") and Universal Pictures, who have agreed to produce.

Grace will also star in the film while he and Kaywin will executive produce.

Michael Dowse, whose most recent film was the 2004 comedy "It's All Gone Pete Tong" (which won the best Canadian film kudos at the 2004 edition of the Toronto Film Festival), has been brought aboard to direct and write the script.

"Kids" follows an aimless college graduate who pursues his dream girl at a wild Labor Day weekend party. He, his twin sister and their best friend struggle with their burgeoning adulthood over the course of the night.

Since the TV series "That 70's Show" just ended, Grace has some time on his hands for new projects. Watch for him in the upcoming "Spider-Man 3." His other film credits include "Win A Date With Tad Hamilton!" and "In Good Company." -- Shannon Nolley
