Dark White is a new script written by Stanley, in development at Blue Wonder Films. To be directed by Marcus Adams (Long Time Dead, Octane).

"Before moving into film, Marcus Adams is active as a pop and commercial director. In just three years, he directs over 50 music videos, and is short-listed for the D&AD Best Direction Award for his R.N.L.I Charity commercial. Prior to that, Adams was commissioned to direct seven 30-second commercials for MTV. He is hired by Working Title’s Tim Bevan and Eric Fellner to develop a „Friday night popcorn movie“. This results in his first feature film, Long Time Dead. Additionally, Adams writes and directs short films (Android). Inspired by the creative possibilities of dance as a visual medium, Adams also forms the audio-visual pop group Meat Beat Manifesto, designing and choreographing the band’s live shows, including two world tours. Additionally, he directs three promo videos for MBM, who also produced for David Bowie and David Byrne. Adams will present us his second feature, Octane."

This is a bit odd. Is it just me or is this starting to look like a pretty high profile writing gig for Stanley?

Note that the writer and director are mistakenly swapped.


From 2001:

Scottish Serial-killer Project Boarded By Gibson’s Icon

BY JAMES MACGREGOR

The tentatively titled UK thriller The Bothy has been boarded by Mel Gibson and Bruce Davey's Icon Entertainment. Budget is between USD10m - USD15m. The Bothy tells the story of an American serial killer on the loose in the Scottish Highlands during the worst storm in living memory. Scottish production company Gabriel Films is developing the project with writer James MacInnes. Ros Borland and Catherine Aitken are producing for Gabriel. Bruce Davey is producing for Icon, which is expected to handle worldwide sales and distribute in the UK and Australia. The partners are currently attaching a director with a view to shooting early next year.

The Bothy marks the second significant UK production Icon has boarded since August, when the company took UK and Australian rights on Assumption Of The Virgin. Sydney Pollack, who is producing through Mirage Enterprises, is considering directing the project after Walter Salles dropped out, citing creative differences.

Icon had a hit last year with UK comedy Kevin And Perry Go Large and is enjoying box-office success in Australia with another of its local productions, The Man Who Sued God. The UK distribution arm this week opened Ghost World in the UK opposite Harry Potter And The Philosopher's Stone for a robust screen average of £3,300 on 40 sites. Gabriel Films is in development on futuristic thriller Alt. Earth and psychological thriller Blood Relative, which has backing from Scottish Screen, the Film Council and Wave Pictures. Also in the works is Passing Places, a comedy road movie set up with BBC Scotland.
