Movies to Come from Award-Winning Producers



A handful of award-winning producers are in the process to develop their next big screen works.

Attempting to strengthen their already-solid positions in mainstream film industry, a number of award-winning producers have prepared to spawn more acclaimed works from their hands for critics and moviegoers to laud of.

BAFTA TV Award winner Andy Harries who recently produced hugely-praised royal drama "The Queen" is reported to develop a biopic titled "Cloughie: Walking on Water." Based on the bestselling autobiography of the same name telling about the life of Brian Clough, one of England's legendary soccer managers, the project brings back the team behind "The Queen" such as screenwriter Peter Morgan, director Stephen Frears, and actor Michael Sheen.

Meanwhile, Oscar winners Dan Jinks and Bruce Cohen, known for their producing work "American Beauty", are both set up to come up with "My Name Is Jody Williams." Written and directed by Audrey Wells, the flick will be an adaptation of the story of a strong-willed woman who gets honored for her efforts in the fight to eradicate land mines.

Also joining the list is Mark Johnson, the 1989 Oscar champ for producing "Rain Man", as he is aiming to bring out his new project of "America" to the big screen. Said to have enlisted the help of Tom Shadyac in getting it made, the guy will develop the picture from script penned by Arab-American writer Isa Totah alongside his two friends, Will Potter and Eric Matheny.

In addition, the Oscar-nominated producers of "Erin Brockovich" Stacey Sher, Michael Shamberg, and Danny DeVito are again joining forces to make a film feature based on Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Geeta Anand's article "The Cure: How a Father Raised $100 Million -- and Bucked the Medical Establishment -- in a Quest to Save His Children." Harrison Ford has already been signed to star with Neil Burger and Robert Nelson Jacobs to direct and pen the script, respectively.
