‘Disturbia’ unleashed

Caruso to helm thriller for studio pair

DreamWorks and Paramount have set one of their first projects since the companies got hitched.

D.J. Caruso will direct “Disturbia,” a thriller expected to begin production by April. Steven Spielberg will exec produce.

Scripted by Christopher Landon, “Disturbia” was bought as a spec last fall by DreamWorks and Montecito Pictures partners Tom Pollock and Ivan Reitman.

Script revolves around a troubled high school senior, still grieving over his father’s death, who is sentenced to house arrest after an outburst of anger at school.

Caruso most recently directed the Al Pacino-Matthew McConaughey-starrer “Two for the Money,” as well as “Taking Lives” and “The Salton Sea.” He has also helmed eps of “The Shield” and “Smallville.”
