Michael Sucsy onboard Spyglass' memory-loss romance

Michael Sucsy, helmer of “Grey Gardens,” has come on board to direct romancer “The Vow” for Spyglass Entertainment.

Spyglass is fully financing “The Vow.” Project’s based on a true story about a young woman who loses all recent memory in a car accident and struggles to rebuild her identity while her husband tries to win her heart for the second time.

Story of the couple — Kim and Krickitt Carpenter — dates from 1993, two months after their marriage, when their car was hit from behind by a fast-moving truck.

Sucsy’s also re-writing the script, penned originally by the writing team of Abby Kohn and Marc Silverstein, who received story credit on “Valentine’s Day.” Sucsy’s also done a re-write on indie drama “Goree Girls,” with Jennifer Aniston headlining the true story of an all-female country band in a Texas prison in the 1940s.

Sucsy was part of the “Grey Gardens” production team that received an Emmy and a Globe.
