George Clooney & Bennett Miller Team For TV Show About 1990s Movie Industry
via The Playlist

George Clooney, who rose to national-stardom as Dr. Doug Ross in NBC’s long lived primetime hospital drama, “ER,” hopes to return with an hour-long comedy-drama about the movie business, seen from the eyes of executives managing it in the 1990s. Though the show hasn’t yet been picked up yet, it has some solid players involved. In addition to Clooney (though, mightn’t that be enough?), Peter Tolan and Bennett Miller are also attached. Tolan, known for creating the Denis Leary vehicle, “Rescue Me,” and writing “Analyze This” and 'That' (among many other things) will write the pilot. Miller, just coming off of “Foxcatcher,” and whose short but impressive resume also includes “Moneyball” and “Capote,” will direct.

Weird to think the "90s" is a thing now, like a Period Piece

Bennett Miller and Tom Stoppard Team Up for 'A Christmas Carol'
via The Hollywood Reporter

Megan Ellison, Scott Rudin, Jennifer Fox and Miller will produce the project for Annapurna.

Director Bennett Miller and screenwriter Tom Stoppard are joining forces to bring a new version of Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol to the big screen. The project, which will be a period piece set in the 19th century like Dickens’ original, is being developed for Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures. Ellison, Miller, Scott Rudin and Jennifer Fox will serve as producers.

Dickens’ classic 1843 novella about Ebenezer Scrooge and his redemptive Christmas Eve tour of the holiday past, present and future has already been adapted for numerous film and TV shows — among them, Brian Desmond Hurt’s famous 1951 version starring Alastair Sim as Scrooge; Ronald Neame’s 1970 musical adaptation Scrooge, with Albert Finney in the title role; and Richard Donner’s modern-day comedy takeoff Scrooged, starring Bill Murray.

The project would reunite Miller, who is repped by CAA, with Annapurna, which produced his last film, 2014’s Foxcatcher, for which he received his second best director Oscar nomination.

Stoppard, repped by Paradigm, is the prolific British playwright and screenwriter who won an original screenplay Oscar for 1998’s Shakespeare in Love, and whose next film is the 18th century love story Tulip Fever, which is set to be released this year by The Weinstein Company.
