Jeff Probst directing feature film

Jeff Probst is looking for a few good men and women - not to compete on “Survivor," but to star in a film he’s directing.

The reality TV show host is currently casting for a movie called "Kiss Me," a feature film he plans to begin shooting in Los Angeles next month. He’s already lined up John Corbett (“Sex and the City”, “My Big Fat Greek Wedding”) to play one role, and 20-year-old Irish actress Sarah Bolger (“In America”) to play the lead.

The film is described as a coming of age story that follows a girl “through the physical and emotional growing pains of her teen years.”

A casting notice for the movie adds details on the lead character: “Forced to wear a back brace to cure her scoliosis, Zoe must navigate complicated relationships with her mother Edith, her best friend Shelby and Chance, a married man whose kids she babysits.”

This will be the second directing effort for Probst, a four-time winner of the outstanding reality host Emmy. In 2002, he wrote and directed “Finder’s Fee," a feature film that starred Ryan Reynolds and James Earl Jones.

Apart from the directing project and his work on “Survivor,” Probst is slated to host a syndicated daytime talk show that will debut in the fall.

    I think he should've weaved his work on Survivor into this film somehow (i.e. – The film is described as a coming of age story on a deserted ilsand that follows a street-smart but mouthy girl “through the physical and emotional growing pains of climbing a coconut tree covered with thorns to retrieve an ido of her teen years – Kirk Cameron.”

    Just my thoughts.
