Neil Patrick Harris is set to make his feature film directing debut, according to the Hollywood Reporter:

Aaronandsarah "The 'How I Met Your Mother' star and Emmy awards host is planning to make his feature directing debut with the romantic comedy 'Aaron and Sarah.' The indie film has also attached Emma Roberts and Josh Hutcherson as its leads. Written by Chad Gomez Creasey and Dara Resnik Creasey (TV’s 'Pushing Daisies'), the story follows a geeky guy and a popular girl who become friends as freshmen in high school and see their relationship deepen through the four years, four proms and one funeral before graduation. The spec, originally titled 'B.F.F.,' was purchased by Rogue Pictures several years ago before Fox 2000 picked it up out of turnaround."
