Dermot Mulroney is set to topline NBC’s drama pilot from writer-executive producer Rand Ravich. Max Martini also has been cast in the project, described as an emotionally charged action thriller set in and around the world of Washington DC. It follows Marcus Finley (Lance Gross), an idealistic Secret Service agent who finds himself at the epicenter of an international crisis on his first day on the job as the President’s son’s protection when the son, along with several of his schoolmates, are kidnapped. Mulroney plays Bill Gibson, the meek-looking man in a sweater vest who is a chaperone on the ill-fated private school bus. Gibson is divorced from his wife and estranged from his daughter, Beth Ann, who is a passenger on the bus, and with whom he is apparently anxious to reconnect. Martini will play Koz, a well-armed and deadly mercenary behind the abduction. Read More »

Joe Carnahan’s Wolf Pic ‘The Grey’ Has Bidders Hungry After 30-Minute Reel

Mike Fleming

EXCLUSIVE: Based on a 30-minute reel being shown to distributors as we speak, bidding is getting hot and heavy on The Grey, the Joe Carnahan-directed drama about an oil-drilling team struggling to survive in the wilds of Alaska after their plane crashes smack in the middle of a territorial rogue wolf pack. Liam Neeson, Dallas Roberts, James Badge Dale, Dermot Mulroney, Frank Grillo, Nonso Anozie and Joe Anderson star in the film. CAA is shopping the Scott Free-produced pic, and I’ve heard that Warner Bros, Open Road, Summit, Lionsgate, The Weinstein Company and FilmDistrict are all in the mix.

The movie’s had heat on it since CAA showed a three-minute reel right after the Cannes Film Festival. The ask is in the $8 million range minimum guarantee and a release upwards of 3000 screens and the deal will certainly be in the seven-figures based on what I’ve heard about the footage. But the bidding is complicated by one thing: the filmmakers are insisting that The Grey be released later this year. It makes sense for a cold-weather film that has a Neeson performance that could be in the Oscar mix. And the film is ready to build buzz that starts with festivals like Toronto. The complication is, several of the distributors have crowded late-year release schedules. This could give an edge to a distributor like Tom Ortenberg’s Open Road, which is looking for exactly this kind of wide-release film. Read More »
