Rosenberg 'Goes' for debut at helm

12 August 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Screenwriter Scott Rosenberg will make his directorial debut on And So It Goes from a script he wrote. The project, out to financiers and producers, is aiming for a spring start. Although Rosenberg has become known for writing such high-octane scripts as Con Air and Gone in 60 Seconds, his directorial debut will take him back to his earlier material like Beautiful Girls. Goes is set in New England and will carry with it a theme of friendship and the passing of time. The project, described as Beautiful Girls meets The Hours meets About a Boy, is about how the appearance of a couple of children causes an underachiever to revisit his relationship with his best friend -- the kids' father -- who has since passed away. CAA, which reps Rosenberg, is helping to package the project. The scribe is continuing with his writing, having recently signed on to script the animated DreamWorks feature Rex Havoc. He also will be co-writing Columbia Pictures' remake of Let's Get Harry and Universal Pictures' remake of The Sentinel. Rosenberg most recently wrote and executive produced the Showtime drama Going to California and co-wrote this year's Warner Bros. Pictures comedy Kangaroo Jack. »

Columbia, Moritz to rescue 'Harry'

7 August 2003 | The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News | See recent The Hollywood Reporter - Movie News news »

Columbia Pictures will remake the 1986 TriStar actioner Let's Get Harry, which Neal Moritz will produce through his studio-based Original Films. Screenwriter Scott Rosenberg is writing the remake with Josh Appelbaum and Andre Nemec, who worked together on the Rosenberg-executive-produced Showtime series Going to California. The original Harry stars Mark Harmon as an American engineer taken hostage and held for ransom in the jungles of South America along with an American ambassador. A group of men -- played by Robert Duvall and Gary Busey, among others -- set out to rescue him. The new version will center on a group of men going to rescue their buddy, who has been taken hostage, despite others urging them to forget it because he may not even be alive anymore. Moritz is producing the project, with Original executive Tania Landau overseeing. Columbia's Matt Tolmach and Rachel O'Connor are the executives on the project. Rosenberg, repped by CAA, has written such films as Kangaroo Jack, Con Air, Gone in Sixty Seconds and Beautiful Girls. Appelbaum and Nemec, repped by Endeavor, were most recently writers and producers on television's Fastlane. Other credits include TV's She Spies, The Chronicle and Profiler. All three writers are also repped by Offer Webber and Dern Llp. »
