Ellen DeGeneres, Lionsgate Developing ‘Jekyll’ Movie

Lionsgate is developing a movie adaptation of the 2007 BBC One series “Jekyll” with Ellen DeGeneres and Jeff Kleeman producing through their A Very Good Production banner.

The writing team of Anthony Bagarozzi and Charles Mondry have written a script with the project now out to directors.

“Jekyll” was a six-episode serial produced by Hartswood Films and Stagescreen Productions. Steven Moffat wrote all six episodes, described by its creators as a sequel to the Robert Louis Stevenson novella “Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.”

James Nesbitt starred as a modern-day descendant of Dr. Jekyll, who has recently begun transforming into a version of Mr. Hyde. Michelle Ryan and Gina Bellman also starred.

Bagarozzi and Mondry collaborated on Shane Black’s upcoming action comedy “The Nice Guys,” starring Russell Crowe and Ryan Gosling, and on “Doc Savage” at Sony and the “Death Note” remake.

DeGeneres announced Thursday that she has signed social-media star Tyler Oakley to a content-development pact, as part of the talk-show host and comedian’s new plan to grow her digital empire. The deal with Oakley comes with the launch of the Ellen Digital Network

Bagarozzi and Mondry are repped by GreenLit Creative. News about the duo working on the script was first reported by the Tracking Board.
