BREAKING: The Weinstein Company is tying up a deal for world rights to The Ends Of The Earth, an Escape Artists-produced package that has Jennifer Lawrence in talks to star. Aside from The Hunger Games success, she recently completed Silver Linings Playbook for TWC. Pic is a fact-based love story about a powerful oil tycoon Ernest Marland, who has everything stripped from him after he is caught in an affair with Lydie, his adopted daughter. The screenplay was written by Argo’s Chris Terrio, and no director has yet been set.
Harvey Weinstein, COO David Glasser and President of Production Dylan Sellers are in the middle of this, and Escape Artists’ Todd Black, Jason Blumenthal, Steve Tisch and Lance Johnson are producing.
