They'll star in 'Eleanor Rigby' pic pair
Ned Benson (“In Defiance of Gravity”) wrote the two scripts and will direct both films. Cassandra Kulukundis, who teamed with Benson on “In Defiance of Gravity,” is producing. Myriad topper Kirk D’Amico will bring the project to Berlin next week. “Ned has created rich and engaging characters,” he said. “They are complex, and it is unique to have two different scripts to tell the story. It doesn’t matter which script you read first; you absolutely want to read the other perspective.” Both films will be stand-alone movies. Deal for Myriad was negotiated by senior VP David Ducar and director of acquisitions and production Ari Haas and for the producers by Alan Grodin.
