HBO Films has acquired Nightingale starring David Oyelowo (Selma) for a May 29 premiere. Directed by Elliott Lester from a screenplay by Frederick Mensch, Nightingale is a single-character drama that probes the darkest corners of a disturbed mind, as a war veteran begins to unravel thread by thread. The searing story of solitude and isolation offers a poignant look at how life has failed one man.

Plan B Entertainment produced Nightingale with BN Films in association with Sea Smoke Entertainment and Yoruba Saxon Productions. Josh Weinstock, Katrina Wolfe, Elliott Lester, and Oyelowo are exec producers as well as Plan B’s Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner.

“We are proud to be partnered with Plan B on this bold and powerful film,” said Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. “This extraordinary solo performance by the incomparably talented David Oyelowo clearly demonstrates why he is one of the most gifted actors today.”

Brad Pitt’s Plan B Productions have optioned the 1981 Stephen King short story The Jaunt for a feature adaptation. The production company has attached Andres Muschietti and Barbara Muschietti, the filmmakers behind the 2013 thriller Mama, to develop the adaptation, with Andres Muschietti possibly directing. As per his standard practice, Stephen King sold his option to the short story for just $1, with the filmmakers given a 90-day window to set a writer in place and make headway in the development process. If enough progress is made within that time frame, no more money changes hands, so look for this project to develop quickly.

From an interview with author Daniel H. Wilson.

How is this research going to be reflected in your upcoming work?

I am writing this screenplay for Lionsgate called Alpha with Plan B [Brad Pitt’s production company]. Although there was just an article the other day that made me sad. The movie Big Hero 6 was based on my graduate school advisor Chris Atkeson’s research on inflatable medical robots. He is interviewed in The Escapist Magazine and mentioned me; he said he was “saddened” his student decided to portray robots in a negative light with the Robopocalypse. I just dashed off an email to him letting him know that my latest project is very pro-robot. He will be very happy whenever he sees it. The robots are heroes, instead of villains.

Plan B’s Brad Pitt, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner will reunite with Selma’s David Oyelowo. Company is coming involved in Nightingale in an unspecified capacity, joining with BN Films and producers Josh Weinstock, Katrina Wolfe (of BN Films) and director Elliott Lester. Details of the deal are still being worked out, but the filmmakers have confirmed that Plan B will will be active partners in the distribution and promotion of the picture. Nightingale is a provocative drama that probes the darkest corners of a disturbed mind. Oyelowo plays Peter Snowden, a man obsessively in love with an old army friend. As he prepares to reunite with the object of his affection, Peter begins to spiral downwards — with fatal results. Oyelowo revealed this at the Santa Barbara Film Festival. The pic needs a domestic distributor and Plan B, which produced 12 Years A Slave and Selma, can certainly be helpful in that regard.

Will WORLD WAR Z 2 be a completely different monster from the first movie? That could be the takeaway based on this interesting statement from the sequel’s screenwriter Steven Knight.

In an interview with Thompson on Hollywood, the Oscar-nominated scribe explains why he took the gig and how it differs from Marc Forster’s original:

“I thought, ‘why not? What fun.’ It’s not quite like the other, we’re starting with clean slate. When they’ve signed off we’re on.”
To me, “clean slate” indicates we won’t be picking up with Brad Pitt’s character, who at the end of the first film was happily reunited with his family after his long, arduous search for a zombie cure. But does it really make sense to make another WORLD WAR Z without Pitt front and center? (His production company, Plan B, will still produce.)

The article also notes that the film is “set to shoot in October for 2016 release.” J.A. Bayona is directing.
