Trudie Styler, Celine Rattray and Davide Azzolini are set to produce a film adaptation of Colum McCann's ballet story "Dancer" for Maven Pictures says Variety.
The book is essentially a biography of Russian dancer Rudolph Nureyev. Born during WWII, he defected at the age of 23 and became one of the best known dancers in the world before dying of AIDS in 1992.
McCann's book however tells Nureyev's story from the perspectives of those who knew him.
Cable network A&E is bypassing a pilot and has ordered the "Psycho" prequel "Bates Motel" straight to series says The Live Feed.
Carlton Cuse ("Lost") and Kerry Ehrin ("Friday Night Lights") are behind the project, inspired by Alfred Hitchcock's 1960 classic. Pre-production is underway with casting to begin shortly ahead of a premiere in 2013.
This contemporary take explores Norman Bates' formative years, his relationship with his mother, and the events that turned him into an infamous serial killer.
Mark Wolper and Roy Lee will also produce. The project continues A&E's move into scripted programming following "The Glades" and "Longmire".
Will Ferrell is attached to star and Craig Gillespie ("Lars and the Real Girl," "Mr. Woodcock") is in negotiations to direct "Flamingo Thief" for Red Hour Films says Variety.
Michael LeSieur ("You, Me and Dupree") adapted Susan Trott's novel about a lawyer who becomes obsessed with stealing figurines of flamingos after his wife leaves him.
Ben Stiller and Stuart Cornfeld will produce. No word on scheduling as Ferrell is committed to the "Anchorman" sequel and the football comedy "Three Mississippi."
Paramount Pictures is planning a big-screen Americanized adaption of the acclaimed British sitcom "The Inbetweeners" says The Hollywood Reporter.
The show followed a quartet of suburban teens in school together at the fictional Rudge Park Comprehensive. Show co-creator Iain Morris will pen and direct the feature which will shift the action to an American school.
The film is presently untitled. A film version of the original UK show became the top-grossing comedy in U.K. history last year.
The project marks the third attempt to adapt the property for the American market following a failed 2008 ABC pilot and MTV's upcoming small screen remake which kicks off in August.
