David Duchovny and Tea Leoni Light "American Dreamers" Spirit



David Duchovny and Tea Leoni will produce a biopic of Reader's Digest founders adapted from Peter Canning's book "American Dreamers."

Bringing their togetherness to work, husband-and-wife David Duchovny and Tea Leoni are teaming up to produce a film feature entitled "American Dreamers" based on the book of the same name by former Reader's Digest editor Peter Canning via their And Then Productions shingle.

Depicting the life story of the founders of Reader's Digest DeWitt and Lila Acheson Wallace, the project will center on the pair's rise as magazine publishers during World War II plus their political compromising of their brand during the Cold War. It is noted that the couple also lost themselves when they became rich and passive as people pawed for money and control of their empire.

"They were manipulated by a system that was so much bigger than they were. The wealthier they got, the more vulnerable they became," Leoni described.

While a writer is currently in search, it has been revealed that the book's author will serve as a consultant on the pic. Meanwhile, Duchovny and Leoni will likely seat as the producers only.
