In 2004, Peep World was staged in New York as part of the Sundance Institute Screenplay Reading Series -- with a particularly interesting cast consisting of Jason Biggs, Michelle Monaghan, Lili Taylor, Shalom Harlow and Roy Scheider. It has taken a few years, but now the project is going to make its way to the big screen. This will be the sophmore feature for Peter Himmelstein. His debut, The Key Man, is currently in production, and reunites Jawbreaker alums Judy Greer and Carol Kane.

While it may sound like a peeping Tom fest, the dark comedy covers a tense birthday party for a family's 70-year-old father. "Seedy family revelations" come about due to one of the man's children's novels -- Peep World -- and the party crumbles. The movie, which will film this summer, is the third feature for Occupant Films. The company, which is also behind Himmelstein's Key Man, is the same one that floored midnight audiences with their first film at TIFF -- All the Boys Love Many Lane -- which Weinstein nabbed the worldwide rights to.

Now we just have to wait to see who gets cast. I wonder if they will try to bring together the cast from 2004, because really, only Taylor and Scheider have upcoming films awaiting production, and maybe this can give Biggs his second chance at the spotlight.
