Keeps putting priority on drama genre, Fox Searchlight Pictures is going to develop a film feature of the kind titled "The Ornate Anatomy of Living Things" from a script by new scribes Matthew Spicer and Max Winkler that the studio has successfully purchased.
Project revolves around a New York bookstore clerk who discovers a museum devoted to his life. No word yet on helmer and cast lineup, but it has been learned that Jason Reitman will produce through his Hard C production company with Peter Principato and Paul Young executive producing.
Established in 1994, Fox Searchlight Pictures is the specialty film division of 20th Century Fox that has a more indie slant than its parent company. Its recent production was romantic dramedy "I Think I Love My Wife", which so far has collected around $12.5 million since its opening on March 16.
