Billy Ray to Rewrite Motorcade


DreamWorks Pictures has hired writer/director Billy Ray to rewrite Motorcade, an action-thriller about terrorists assaulting the president’s procession as it snakes through Los Angeles.

Hans Bauer and Craig Mitchell sold their original pitch to DreamWorks in November 2004, with Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald producing.

Ray has embraced a shrewd mix of rewrites on such big-budget fare as Volcano, Flightplan and State of Play and more personal writing-directing assignments such as Shattered Glass, Breach and the forthcoming Hurricane Season at Universal.
