'Sunshine' director signs on to Castle Rock pic

Sunshine Cleaning” helmer Christine Jeffs has signed to direct “Wonderful Tonight” for Castle Rock Entertainment.

Scripted by J. Mills Goodloe, the film chronicles the relationship between a confirmed bachelor and a young woman, after their one-nighter leads to an unplanned pregnancy and a surprising love affair.

Castle Rock’s Martin Shafer and Liz Glotzer will produce. Susan Arnold and Donna Roth will also be involved in a producing capacity.

Before “Sunshine Cleaning,” Jeffs directed the Gwyneth Paltrow starrer “Sylvia” and made her helming debut on “Rain.” Goodloe just completed adapting the John Grisham novel “Playing for Pizza” and is writing another project for Castle Rock.

Jeffs and Goodloe are repped by UTA, and Anonymous Content manages the writer.
