Columbia Pictures has acquired the rights to develop the Dutch thriller Taped into an English-language motion picture to be produced by Red Wagon Entertainment's Douglas Wick and Lucy Fisher, it was announced today by Hannah Minghella, president of production for Columbia Pictures.

In the Dutch film, a young couple, while vacationing in Buenos Aires to recapture their romance, inadvertently tapes the murder of an innocent man by a corrupt cop, forcing them to find resources they didn't know they had to fight for their lives to escape.

Commenting on the announcement, Minghella said, "We're huge fans of 'Taped' – and believe that Doug and Lucy have just the right take on the material to adapt it for English speaking audiences."

Through Red Wagon, Wick and Fisher are currently producing The Great Gatsby, starring Leonardo DiCaprio, Tobey Maguire, and Carey Mulligan, with Baz Luhrmann directing, and Wettest County, a prohibition-era gangster film directed by John Hillcoat and starring Shia LaBeouf, Tom Hardy, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska, Gary Oldman, and Guy Pearce.

NL Films, the Dutch production company behind Taped, will serve as an executive producer on the new production. The company is owned by Alain de Levita and Endemol. The original film was produced by De Levita and the negotiations were handled by NL producer Sytze van der Laan. Their TV series “Penoza” is currently being remade for American audiences by ABC.

Minghella and Jonathan Kadin will oversee the project for Columbia Pictures, and Rachel Shane and Andy Dahm will oversee for Red Wagon.
