David O. Russell Climbs Sammy’s Hill


David O. Russell is adapting and is attached to direct the Washington comedy Sammy’s Hill for Columbia Pictures and Red Wagon.

The project, based on Kristin Gore’s inside-the-Beltway novel, centers on a young woman who tries to balance a job as a congressional aide on Capitol Hill while searching for the right guy.

Gore is the daughter of former Vice President Al Gore. Russell is working closely with Kristin Gore, Dave Jeser and Matt Silverstein on the screenplay.

Red Wagon’s Doug Wick and Lucy Fisher are producing.
