Millennium Films has signed Marshak Zachary Co.’s Darryl Marshak to a two-year first-look production deal.

Marshak is currently working on a film version of Peabody Award-winning NPR correspondent John Hockenberry’s memoir “Moving Violations,” which Michael Maren will adapt with Alfred Sapse producing.

“Darryl’s eye for material, his great relationships with talent and our twenty plus years of successful collaboration are the factors that led to this agreement,” said Millennium chairman Avi Lerner in a statement announcing Marshak’s deal.
