Amazon Studios continues to firm up its next batch of pilot orders. I hear the company is zeroing in on comedy Cosmopolitan from The Last Days Of Disco filmmaker Whit Stillman and drama Hysteria from Invasion creator Shaun Cassidy. Cosmopolitan, which Stillman wrote and will direct and executive produce, chronicles the loves and adventures of a group of young ex-patriates in Paris. Hysteria, produced by Alcon Entertainment, centers on a doctor who travels to her hometown of Houston to investigate an epidemic among high school girls that may be spreading through technology. The projects join drama Hand Of God, written by Ben Watkins, directed by Marc Forster and starring Ron Perlman, which also is nearing official pilot green light. Stillman is with UTA and Mosaic; Cassidy with CAA.
