New Line is developing Man That Rocks the Cradle as the first star vehicle for Samuel L. Jackson since the studio signed a deal with the actor’s Uppity Films.
Bought as a spec script by Josh Cagan and based on a story by Cagan and Rob McKittrick, the film revolves around an overworked husband and father of four who decides the solution to all his problems is a live-in nanny. Jackson will play the nanny, Marion Delacroix, a reputed “kid whisperer” from the South.
Jackson will produce the film with Michael Nash through the Uppity Films. Chris Fenton and McKittrick will be executive producers.
