Screen Gems Stands on "Moral Grounds"

Screen Gems is about to develop a big screen feature based on Robby Kushner's 2006 documentary flick "On Moral Grounds."


Putting a portion of attention to drama genre this time, Screen Gems is on the move to set up a film feature entitled "On Moral Grounds" at its pit, Variety has learned.

The second project from the company based on a real court case after "The Burial", pic will be made based on the 2006 documentary of the same name about a lawyer who took on a large insurance company for stiffing Holocaust survivors. It is reported that the studio will also distribute the original, which was directed and produced by Robby Kushner.

Shot on location in Eastern Europe and in the courtrooms of the United States, the documentary follows a lawyer named Lisa Stern as she joined forces with attorney William Shernoff to wage a long-shot battle against insurance company Generali. The result paved the way for a $5.2 billion fund that German companies established to pay reparations to Holocaust survivors.
