British director Johannes Roberts is re-teaming with production and finance outfit The Fyzz Facility for coming-of-age drama “Hearts,” an adaptation of Stephen King’s critically acclaimed novella “Hearts in Atlantis.”
Set in 1966, “Hearts” is a bittersweet coming-of-age story about a group of college boys and their first time away from home, their obsession and self-destruction, and what it means to be an adult in a world where, in the face of a devastating war no one understands, adults can no longer be trusted.
Roberts adapted the story with his regular writing partner, Ernest Riera. The pair has recently come off of horror film “The Other Side Of The Door,” starring Sarah Wayne Callies and released worldwide by 20th Century Fox, and shark thriller “47 Meters Down,” starring Mandy Moore, which marked Roberts’ first collaboration with The Fyzz Facility. “47 Meters Down”is scheduled for U.S. release through Entertainment Freestyle in 2017.

If you’ve been living under a rock all day then you might have missed the news earlier, that the forthcoming Han Solo spin-off has found its new Han Solo: Alden Ehrenreich.

Chris Gerolmo will adapt the book of the same name written by New York Times columnist Joe Sharkey. “Above Suspicion” is the chilling true story of a newly married FBI poster boy assigned to an Appalachian mountain town in Kentucky. There he is drawn into an illicit affair with an impoverished local woman who becomes his star informant. She sees in him her means of escape; instead, it’s a ticket to disaster for both of them. This scandal shook the foundations of the nation’s top law enforcement agency, ending in the first ever conviction of an FBI agent for murder.
The film will be produced by Colleen Camp for Colleen Camp Productions, and produced and financed by Mohamed AlRafi and Tim Degraye. Also producing are Emmy-nominated writer Angela Amato-Velez and Amy Adelson. »
