Antidote, This Is That fly together with ‘Hawk’

'Station,' 'Eternal' producers in on Crews' tragic tome

Antidote Films will team with This Is That on writer-director Julian Goldberger’s “The Hawk Is Dying,” a drama of tragedy and salvation to star Paul Giamatti, Sarah Polley and Michael Pitt.

Produced by Mary Jane Skalski and Jeff Levy-Hinte of Antidote and exec produced by Ted Hope of This Is That, the script was adapted by Goldberger from the novel by Harry Crews. Giamatti will play a man who seeks comfort after a tragic event in a red-tailed hawk, but finds it instead in a young graduate student played by Polley.

A fall shoot is scheduled in Florida.

“Julian’s first feature, ‘Trans,’ was one of the strongest visual and aural debuts I have witnessed,” said Hope. “Through the development process, Julian has proven to be equally adept at narrative and character.”

Recent Antidote productions include “The Station Agent” and “Thirteen.” Company is in post on Gregg Araki’s “Mysterious Skin” and at preparation stage on Todd Louiso’s “Macbeth” and Bob Odenkirk’s “The Fuck Up.”

This Is That most recently bowed “Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind.” Upcoming releases from the shingle include “The Door in the Floor” from Focus Features and John Waters’ “A Dirty Shame” from New Line.
