Filmmaker Errol Morris, best known for his law-changing documentary "The Thin Blue Line" and Oscar-winning "The Fog of War," has attached himself to narrative feature "Holland, Michigan." Per Deadline, the film is "a suburban thriller laced with black humor." It is penned by first-timer Andrew Sodroski, a Harvard grad. Le Grisbi's John Lesher and Adam Kessan will produce. Meanwhile, Morris has another feature somewhere in the pipeline: "Freezing People Is Easy." During press rounds for his last documentary "Tabloid," Morris described it to Empire as "a dramatic feature about the first man to be cryogenically frozen"; that project has Christopher Walken, Paul Rudd, Kristen Wiig and Owen Wilson on board. "Holland, Michigan" is reportedly set to begin production in early 2014. Morris has had a 22-year hiatus from narrative filmmaking; his Lou Diamond Phillips police procedural "The Dark Wind" was made in 1991. »

Errol Morris is known primarily for directing documentaries, and he's made some of the best ones of the past 25 years. He even got a guy freed from jail with his magnificent 1988 documentary, The Thin Blue Line. However, Morris does have one non-documentary feature in his filmography: 1991's The Dark Wind starring Lou Diamond Phillips. Morris will now make a return to the fiction form with Holland, Michigan, "a suburban thriller laced with black humor based on a script by first-timer Andrew Sodroski." Deadline doesn't have any other details on the plot, but the production is aiming to begin shooting in the spring. Morris is also attached to the fiction film, Freezing People Is Easy starring Owen Wilson, Christopher Walken, and Paul Rudd. It's based on a This American Life program about a man who tried to run a homemade cryogenics lab, and it went horribly wrong (click here to listen »

Errol Morris's name tends to be met with a hush of reverence in documentary-making circles, but he's no newcomer to the feature-making either. He's attached himself to another, Holland, Michigan, his first since 1991's Lou Diamond Phillips crime procedural The Dark Wind. An Oscar-winner with The Fog Of War and a law-changer with The Thin Blue Line, Morris is turning his attention to a movie that Deadline calls "a suburban thriller laced with black humor", presumably set on the eastern banks of Lake Michigan. Holland, Michigan is written by Harvard grad and newbie screenwriter Andrew Sodroski, and will be produced by Le Grisbi’s John Lesher and Adam Kassan.When Empire met Morris for Tabloid last year, he talked about making "a dramatic feature about the first man to be cryogenically frozen", so his documentary work may be on the backburner for the foreseeable future. That sci-fi-sounding project goes »
Master documentarian Errol Morris is largely known for his fascinating profiles into the odder and darker corners of humanity that still somehow manage to resonate with nearly everyone who crosses his films. Everything from pet cemeteries ("Gates Of Heaven") to war veterans ("The Fog Of War") to physicists ("A Brief History Of Time") to a woman's adventures in kidnapping and cloning ("Tabloid"), Morris chases his fascinations wherever they take him. However, feature films are something he hasn't completely ignored. In 1991, he directed the not very well received "The Dark Wind," and while a long feature break followed, the pieces seemed to be coming together for "Freezing People Is Easy" last year with a star-studded cast -- Paul Rudd, Owen Wilson, Kirsten Wiig and Christopher Walken -- but then all went quiet. But now it looks like Morris is getting on-board a different fictional feature. Deadline reports that he'll direct "Holland, »
