Gotham-based production company Redeemable Features has agreed to produce “Interstate 60,” the feature directorial debut of Bob Gale, who co-wrote and co-produced the series of “Back to the Future” films.
“Interstate” is an offbeat road film that follows a young man’s search for answers along a highway that doesn’t exist on any map. Christopher Lloyd has expressed an interest in playing one of the main roles.
“As much as Bob tapped into the pulse of the society of the ’80s with the ‘Back to the Future’ films, this project will tap into what people are thinking and feeling as we approach the new millennium,” says Peter Newman, who is a partner in Redeemable along with Ira Deutchman and Greg Johnson.
Gale is repped by Dan Aloni and Jeremy Zimmer at UTA and his attorney Harold Brown at Gang, Tyre, Ramer and Brown.
Redeemable is currently in post-production on Adam Davidson’s “Way Past Cool” and is in pre-production on Victor Levin’s “The Successor,” Alan Rudolph’s “Trixie” starring Anne Heche and several other projects.
In August, Miramax will release Redeemable’s “Strike,” directed by Sarah Kernochan and starring Kirsten Dunst, Gaby Hoffman and Lynn Redgrave.
