He also adapted Daniel Waters’ supernatural thriller “Break My Heart 1,000 Times” for Gold Circle Films and action-adventure “The Clock Without a Face” for the Montecito Picture Co. and Paramount, based on the book of the same name.

Separately, ImageMovers also produced “Real Steel,” which Disney distribbed for DreamWorks in 2011.
