Been gearing the project since 2005, Paramount Pictures finally lands the choice to George C. Wolfe. The Emmy nominated director is set to direct "Blood on the Leaves".
Wolfe will work with Jamie Foxx who acts as the main actor as well as the producer of this movie. The studio is still on the hunt for second male lead that will accompany Foxx.
Wolfe is mostly known for his work in successful HBO's TV series "Lackawanna Blues". He is also working in wide-screen with Richard Gere and Diane Lane in drama "Nights in Rodanthe".
"Blood on the Leaves" will be based on Jeffrey Stetson's 2004 novel that tells on racial issues circling a district attorney during Civil Rights movement.
