TV’s Sackheim to helm Sony pic ‘Glass’

Director worked on 'ER,' 'Law & Order,' 'Harsh Realm'

TV helmer Daniel Sackheim has signed to make his first leap to the bigscreen directing Sony Pictures Entertainment’s “Glass House.”

Pic, a thriller that centers on a young woman whose parents die in a suspicious car accident, is from a Wesley Strick spec script that Sony picked up in October (Daily Variety, Oct. 11).

Sackheim has worked on several top TV shows, including “ER,” “NYPD Blue” and “Law & Order.” More recent credits include “Millennium” and “Harsh Realm.”

The script is one of a handful to fall under Sony’s “qualified writers” initiative intended to snag scripting commitments by offering writers potentially rich backend deals. “Glass House” is said to have brought $500,000 against more than $1.5 million for Strick.

In addition, Strick will take 2% of adjusted gross receipts on “Glass” after Sony recoups P&A and negative costs, but not its distribbing fee.

Pic is being shepherded by Columbia executive VP of production Matt Tolmach.
