Ross sewn up as director on Par's 'Button'

3 June 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter | See recent The Hollywood Reporter news »

Gary Ross has come aboard to develop and direct Paramount Pictures' Benjamin Button, a drama based on a fabled short story by F. Scott Fitzgerald. No start date has yet been set. Fitzgerald's story, "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button," chronicles an old man who physically ages backward. At age 50, he falls in love with a 30-year-old woman and then must come to terms with the relationship as they literally grow in opposite directions. The initial draft was penned by Robin Swicord (Little Women). Eric Roth wrote the most recent draft of the script, which is what attracted Ross to the project. The filmmaker is currently working with Roth on the script. Frank Marshall and Kathleen Kennedy -- who are producers on Ross' upcoming Universal Pictures feature Seabiscuit -- will produce Button with Marykay Powell and Ray Stark, the latter who has long held the rights to the story. The project has been in development for some time and has attracted the interest of several directors over the years, including Ron Howard, Phil Alden Robinson and Spike Jonze. Button reunites Ross with Paramount, for whom he is developing the Nickelodeon Films feature tentatively titled Imaginary Friend, written by Anne Spielberg (HR 3/15/02). Ross is repped by CAA. »
