DreamWorks Depicting "American Life"



DreamWorks SKG will develop a movie based on stories aired on popular radio program "This American Life."

Taking similar vein with what Picturehouse has done to "A Prairie Home Companion" in turning a radio show into a film feature, DreamWorks SKG has reached a deal with Ira Glass and WBEZ/Chicago Public Radio to develop "This American Life", a big screen project adapted from the same-titled show, which is distributed to more than 500 stations nationwide through Public Radio International.

No word yet on when the project will start production, but it is said that Glass, Julie Snyder and Alissa Shipp are all set to seat as producers. The picture itself is intended to be made based on the stories aired on the program which have been noted to center on a theme with a collection of funny, emotional real-life stories drawn from everyday occurrences.

Glass, who previously teamed up with Warner Bros. Pictures to bring out "Unaccompanied Minors" to the big screen, has expressed his excitement and optimism in DreamWorks' move toward the movie. "We also hear they've got this Spielberg guy who's supposed to be pretty good," he remarked.
