The De Laurentiises Hemmed In By "Swarm" of People



Producers Dino and Martha De Laurentiis are partnering with three German producers to adapt Frank Schatzing's best-selling novel "The Swarm" into the big screen.

Bringing their togetherness to work once again, husband-wife producing team Dino and Martha De Laurentiis are about to make a big-budget ecological disaster movie entitled "The Swarm" which is said to be designed on the scale of natural disaster flicks in the vein of "The Day After Tomorrow."

Based on German author Frank Schatzing's best-selling novel of the same name, pic takes focus on an alien presence that exists quietly on the ocean floor and is compelled to destroy humanity after its eco-system is disrupted by pollution. Writing duties will be handled by Ted Tally, who previously worked with the De Laurentiis duo in "Red Dragon."

In carrying out their task as producers, De Laurentiises are accompanied by a trio of German producers consisting of Michael Souvignier, Ica Souvignier, and Till Gronemeyer. The pair will first bring the project to Universal Pictures, where they have a first-look deal at.
