We reported yesterday that THE CONTRACT was making some serious moves:
- Mark Gordon Company — into — Columbia Pictures/Dreamworks/Skydance Productions/Fox Searchlight
- John Rickard — into — New Line Cinema
- Alex Young — into — Fox2000/New Regency/CBS Films
We’re also hearing this is direct into at least one studio president!
Late last night apparently the spec made one last move.
- Producers — into — Focus Features
The thriller is being kept under wraps but is based on the 1974 film “The Marseille Contract” directed by Robert Parrish. It’s written by Joseph Muscat who is repped by Brad Rosenfeld of Preferred Artists and Jonathan Hung and Hung Entertainment Group.
We’ll keep you posted on any and all updates!
