Seemingly needs more than just one writer to tackle the task, prominent producer Joe Roth has hired both Peter Speakman and Michael Galvin to work on the script for his long-gestating flick of "Red Tails in Love."
Loosely based on a 1998 nature tome by Wall Street Journal writer Marie Winn, the romantic comedy is said to present a story about love among New York birdwatchers. On board to direct are longtime partners Deborah Kaplan and Harry Elfont, who started developing the project two years ago.
"We both lived in New York -- we went to NYU -- and we know how isolating the city can be," Kaplan remarked while pointing out that Speakman and Galvin are indeed the right guys to write about the various subcultures vying with birdwatchers in Central Park. "This really brought a bunch of people together."
Names to star have not yet been revealed and neither has the production date, but it is learned that Suzanne and Jennifer Todd also Christian McLaughlin will accompany Roth in producing the movie.
