Fox 2000 taps ‘Grey Gardens’ director for ‘Rosaline’

Michael Sucsy takes over big-screen adaptation of Rebecca Serle's debut novel

Fox 2000 has tapped “Grey Gardens” helmer Michael Sucsy to direct a bigscreen adaptation of Rebecca Serle’s debut novel “Rosaline.”

Shawn Levy will produce under his 21 Laps Entertainment banner.

Story focuses on Romeo’s jilted ex-girlfriend Rosaline as she tells her side of William Shakespeare’s “Romeo and Juliet” in this comedy set in 16th century Verona.

Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber will write the script; their credits include “500 Days of Summer” and “Pink Panther 2.”

Erin Siminoff oversees for the studio.

Levy, who recently wrapped the Hugh Jackman-toplined “Real Steel,” has several high-profile projects in the works, including “Fantastic Voyage,” which includes James Cameron as a producer, and “Neighborhood Watch” with Ben Stiller.

Sucsy is represented by CAA and Anonymous Content.
