David Gordon Green to Protect "The Innocent Man"
Currently busy filming "The Pineapple Express" for Columbia Pictures, David Gordon Green turns out to still have an eye for doing another project. The Hollywood Reporter has learned that the filmmaker is engaged in final talks to both write and direct "The Innocent Man: Murder and Injustice in a Small Town" for Warner Independent Pictures (WIP) and Smoke House.
An adaptation of John Grisham's nonfiction book of the same name, the picture depicts the true story of a man named Ron Williamson who was wrongly convicted of murder and had to spend more than ten years on death row in Oklahoma. WIP and Smoke House previously purchased the film rights to the book December last year.
In addition, WIP has also acquired the rights to distribute Green's other work "Snow Angels" across the world, excluding Spain, Mexico, Latin America, and a few smaller territories, for a next year release. Based on the Stewart O'Nan's 1993 novel, it tells about a separated couple in a small town whose lives take a turn for the worse after the woman begins an affair with the husband of her best friend.
