And In Other Film Deals…

HBO has Al Pacino moving from Jack Kevorkian to playing Phil Spector in a film directed by David Mamet. I can tell you that Cameron Crowe tried for years to make a studio feature film about Mr. Wall Of Sound with Tom Cruise playing the gun-toting volatile record producer. But eventually they dropped it because at the time they felt there wasn’t a third act. By the time it arrived, there was no way Crowe and Cruise would have been able to make an authorized film… IFC acquired North American and a few other territories on the David Robert Mitchell-directed The Myth of the American Sleepover… Kris Kristofferson has joined Morgan Freeman, Harry Connick Jr, and Ashley Judd in Alcon’s 3D Dolphin Tale.
