Walt Disney Pictures has tapped David Oyelowo to star in the movie “Cyrano the Moor” with “Moonlight” writer Tarell Alvin McCraney on board.
The idea, which is in early development, would combine elements of Edmond Rostand’s play “Cyrano de Bergerac” and William Shakespeare’s “Othello,” set in the Bristol region of England during the 19th century.
The idea was conceived by Oyelowo’s development team and sold to Disney, which hired McCraney to write a script. The producers will be Yoruba Saxon, David Oyelowo and Jessica Oyelowo. Tendo Nagenda and Chaz Salembier are overseeing for Disney.
McCraney is repped by CAA and Manage-ment. Oyelowo is repped by CAA and Inphenate. The news was first reported by Deadline Hollywood
Sue Naegle and Jeremy Garelick are producing.
The script, which was written by Steinel, centers on the relationship between an emotionally stunted aunt (Schilling) and her 13-year-old niece, who wants nothing more than to run away from home and become a juggalo. A juggalo is a term used for extreme fans of a subset of hip-hop who have developed their own social group and lingo. (Yes, it's a real thing.)

“Tonight I made three ‘Love Guru’ jokes, which is three more than what made it into ‘The Love Guru,'” he quipped.
De Luca, who accepted top honors at the organization’s first Spirit of Hope Dinner with wife Angelique, opened his acceptance speech on the defense.
“I did get some profit [for ‘The Love Guru’],” De Luca said. “I got a profit for participation check from Paramount, which is rare in this town. It was for $62.”
De Luca’s award was presented by producer and former Sony co-chairman Amy Pascal, who received her own
The series comes from Jeremy Garelick, who previously wrote and directed The Wedding Ringer, and Aaron Cooley. The show will follow some ambitious undergrads who use social media to fake a senatorial candidate. Then, a mysterious person arrives and alleges they are the real candidate.
Cooley is slated to write the pilot, with Garelick to direct.
What do you think? Does this sound like something you'd watch?
The young-skewing cable network has purchased a pitch for “The Campaigners,” a political dramedy from “The Wedding Ringer” helmer Jeremy Garelick and author/producer Aaron Cooley, Variety has learned exclusively.
The hourlong project revolves around a group of overachieving undergrads who use their social media savvy to get a fictional candidate nominated for the upcoming senate election. What started as a political statement turns into a twisted mystery when a suspicious person claims to be their candidate, and the ensemble must scramble to cover up the campaign before their imposter gets elected.
Cooley will pen the script. Should the pilot be greenlit, Garelick will direct. Both will serve as exec producers, and Sam Anzel will co-produce.
Garelick and Cooley were college classmates and assistants to director Joel Schumacher (“Batman Forever,” “Batman & Robin”) in their early years. During that time,
Over the years that Den Of Geek has been going, we've regularly been charting the assortment of reboots and remakes that are making their way through the Hollywood system. This, then, is the current state of play. We've removed a bunch of projects that seem utterly dead - the once mooted remakes of Videodrome and Timecrimes, for instance - but we'll keep this list up to date as and when we hear of more.
Without further ado, here's what's coming up...
One of Hollywood's most on and off projects, the current state of the live action Akira remake is that it's back in the works. Marco J Ramirez, the showrunner for season 2 of Netflix's Daredevil show, has been hired to pen a screenplay. Warner Bros is still backing the film,
The Baywatch movie has been in the works since July 2009, when Jeremy Garelick signed on to write and direct. A slew of writers have worked on the project between now and then, including Brian Gatewood & Alessandro Tanaka, Peter Tolan and Justin Malen. The writing team of Damian Shannon and Mark Swift wrote the most recent draft of the screenplay, which the studio is moving forward with.

Confession time. I’m not the biggest Kevin Hart fan. I don’t mind the actor/comedian in small doses – a supporting actor in films such as the remake of Death at a Funeral and the Scary Movie franchise, but I can’t sit through any of his stand-up shows in there entirety and the last movie hes was the “star” of, Ride Along, was – frankly – awful. However I am always willing to give Hart’s film a go – especially when they look, albeit from the trailer, as hilarious as The Wedding Ringer.
And I’m happy to report The Wedding Ringer is not only a fantastic bro-mance flick (yes, they Do exist
When Jim Batts reviewed The Wedding Ringer here at We Are Movie Geeks, he wrote: “…….First time feature director Jeremy Garelik tries to give the flick a frenzied pace by quickly cutting in for close-ups constantly, which never exhilarates, but merely exhausts the viewer. Every bit of business is hammered home, with little room for characterization. Subtlety? No way! No time! Got to get to the next big “gut-buster”…..(read all of Jim’s review Here)
I didn’t see The Wedding Ringer when it played theatrically, but after catching up with it on Blu-ray, I’d have to say I liked it a bit better than Jim did, but of course I watched it at home as opposed to a theater full of people who may or may have not been laughing.
