Damien Chazelle’s Pre- LA LA LAND Script Picked Up
Before writer/director Damien Chazelle got his award nominations and win for Whiplash in 2014 and now La La Land, he had written a script that made the Black List (the industry list of the best unmade films). What?
The script, titled The Claim has been picked by Motion Picture Capital and Route One producing.
The Claim tells the story of a single father who has a criminal past. He learns about the whereabouts of his daughter who has been kidnapped, while fighting the mysterious claims of another couple who insist that the child is theirs. The film is set to be released sometime in 2018.
No word yet on whether Chazelle will direct.
