Hanson migrates to TV
'8 mile' director inks deal with CBS
Source: Variety
 
Curtis Hanson has become the latest filmmaker to join the migration to network television.

Helmer of "8 Mile" and "L.A. Confidential" has inked a multiyear overall deal with CBS Paramount Network Television. He and producing partner Carol Fenelon will create, develop and produce shows in all genres for the studio via their Deuce Three Prods. banner.

Hanson joins a slew of feature talent that has set up shop in TV land over the past few years, including Jerry Bruckheimer, Mark Gordon, Joe Roth and David Mamet.

CBS Par prexy David Stapf said he looked forward to collaborating with Hanson and Fenelon.

"Curtis Hanson's extraordinary visual style and storytelling ability make him a highly regarded and sought-after filmmaker," Stapf said. "We are excited that he wants to bring his unique talents to television."

Hanson said television will open up new creative opportunities for Deuce Three.

"There are characters and situations I've long wanted to explore in a format not limited by the constraints of a two- hour running time," he said. "For Carol and me, this venture is the perfect fusion of that desire and the opportunity to accomplish it with partners we greatly respect."

Hanson's next feature is "Lucky You," a poker drama starring Eric Bana and Drew Barrymore that's set to open May 4. Project was developed with Fenelon for Warner Bros. under the Deuce Three banner.

Company is in development on adaptations of the George Pelecanos novel "Right as Rain" for Warners and Michel Faber's "The Crimson Petal and the White" at Sony. They're also working on nonfiction bird-watching saga "The Big Year" at DreamWorks.

Curtis Hanson circling 'Gemini Man'
David Benioff wrote Jerry Bruckheimer thriller
Source: Variety

Curtis Hanson is negotiating with Disney to direct "Gemini Man," an action thriller that will be produced by Jerry Bruckheimer.

David Benioff wrote the most recent draft of the script.

An NSA agent tries to retire and is targeted for death. He discovers that his assassin is a younger cloned version of himself.

Mike Stenson and Chad Oman will be executive producers with Don Murphy.

The director best known for "Wonder Boys" and "L.A. Confidential" will be taking on his first cloning tale. He is also looking to end a development process that dates back nearly a decade. Darren Lemke originated the project, and drafts were subsequently penned by the likes of Jonathan Hensleigh.

I LOVE 'LA Confidential' with a huge passion because I love ellroy and kevin spacey is in it and he's magnificent in it. I haven't read the books in ages so I need to go through all of ellroys books and plow through them. 'Wonder boys' was great too. That film really did have Robert Downey Jr. at his most mischieviest. 'The hand that rocks the cradle' I haven't seen in a long time.  '8 Mile' was solid, yet a bit too formulaic. 'In her shoes' was embaressing and 'Lucky you' I haven't seen yet.

'Gemini Man' could be fantastic fare, if done right.
