The project was originally set up at New Regency, which has since put it in turn-around. It caught the attention of Endgame CEO Jim Stern, who has always had a deep interest in the late Senator and presidential candidate.
“I was always drawn to his brand of leadership and his brand of passion and where he came out on issues,” Stern told Variety.
Stern added that another reason he wanted to do the film was the opportunity to finally work with Ross.

Directed by Louis Malle.
A self-assured business man murders his employer, the husband of his adulterer, which unintentionally provokes an ill-fated chain of events.
The stuck-in-a-lift plot device grabs your attention. The opening action-sequence of Speed; Emilio Estevez’s short-lived role in Mission: Impossible and the Shyamalan-penned Devil. The claustrophobic, metallic space automatically creates a sense of urgency and tension. The silver-box, hanging by a taught, tight wire seems so fragile and yet it remains the spine of the modern skyscraper – who would walk up so many flights of stairs and remain, effortlessly cool?

A poker table in the late seventies, a bathroom in the mid-noughties… television shows have many birthplaces. Had screenwriters David Greenwalt and Jim Kouf not been introduced at a card game over thirty years ago, and had producer Todd Milliner not taken a 2006 shower in which he pondered what existing stories were in need of a modern update for TV, then Grimm might never have existed.
First, that poker game. Greenwalt and Kouf’s friendship began a couple of years before their first official screenwriting credit on 1982’s horror spoof Wacko, a job for which the pair were paid the princely sum of fifteen thousand dollars…
“We did a lot of fun movies back then”
That’s what Greenwalt told Collider »
The term ‘Brat Pack’ was of course given to a now infamous group of young actors who appeared in many teen-oriented movies in the 1980s – a large proportion of which were directed by John Hughes. Among them were names as famous as Molly Ringwald, Emilio Estevez, Ally Sheedy, Rob Lowe, Demi Moore, Anthony Michael Hall and a seemingly huge cast of players.
Membership of the ‘official’ Brat Pack is dependent upon being in either St Elmo’s Fire or The Breakfast Club, but there were a lot of other young actors and actresses starring in other films, who could feasibly be considered in the same vein – so I have widened the net a bit, but I think they could all legitimately be called Brat Pack movies.
The actors who were given this title apparently hated it. They were awarded the title thanks to an article by David Blum »
