Garcia’s ‘Imagining’ gets direction

Parker ready to roll 'Argentina'.

Oliver Parker, who last directed “Othello” from his own adaptation, has been set to helm Interscope’s and Spelling Films’ “Imagining Argentina,” sources said. The project had been in development with Andy Garcia for some time. “Imaging Argentina,” which is scripted by Michael Bortman based on the novel by Lawrence Thornton, follows the story of a schoolteacher who discovers he has visions of those who have disappeared. The deal for the project is unusual in that Interscope is producing and Spelling Films is financing. Parker is also still attached to direct “My Cousin Rachel,” which is in turnaround from Fox. CAA’s Adam Krentzman and Beth Swofford repped Parker in the deal.
