Warner Bros. Moves Forward on ‘Past Due’ with ‘Trouble with the Curve’ Director (EXCLUSIVE)

Warner Bros. has come on board “Past Due,” setting up the action project with Robert Lorenz, Clint Eastwood’s longtime producing partner.

The studio has acquired the Blacklist script by Thompson Evans as a possible directing vehicle for Lorenz, who made his feature directorial debut on 2012’s “Trouble With the Curve.”

“Past Due” is described as a female version of David Cronenberg’s “A History of Violence,” released in 2005 by New Line.

The project is not set up at Eastwood’s Warner-based Malpaso banner. Lorenz is producing and Evans’ manager, Rich Freeman, is executive producing along with Code Entertainment.

Jon Berg and Racheline Benveniste are overseeing for the studio.

Lorenz has produced Eastwood’s films for more than a decade and received Best Picture Oscar nominations with Eastwood on “Mystic River” and “Letters from Iwo Jima.” He and Eastwood are currently in post-production on “American Sniper,” which stars Bradley Cooper and is due out at Christmas.

Evans has also written “Eli Webb,” another Blacklist script, along with extensive work in one-hour TV projects for ABC, Fox and Universal. He’s represented by Gersh and managed by Code.
