Gordon Green, Parkinson Team on Two Projects


New writer Josh Parkinson and writer/director David Gordon Green have teamed for two projects, says The Hollywood Reporter.

Green’s Rough House has picked up Parkinson’s first original screenplay, Free Country, a thriller with comedic elements. Parkinson is further developing the script with Green, who may direct.

The pair also has been hired by Paramount to rework the screenplay for Battling Boy, an adaptation of a graphic novel the studio picked up in late 2008 for Brad Pitt’s Plan B production company. Watchmen co-writer Alex Tse previously worked on the adaptation.
