MTV Films, whose recent slate includes Aeon Flux, The Longest Yard and The Warriors, is producing a film that will explore life at a school for privileged kids. The project, entitled Prep, centers on teens at the school with more money and time than they know what to do with and spend both being as bad as they can be.
The main character in the flick tries to leave the no morals world of these kids behind but is thrust back into it, when he tries to save the brother of the girl he loves.
The project is being readied at Paramount Pictures. Both MTV and Paramount are owned by Viacom.
MTV Films was also one of the producers of Napoleon Dynamite, the hit high-school comedy distributed by Fox Searchlight.
