New financiers come aboard adaptation
Meg, the proposed feature film based on Steve Alten’s ’97 novel, may be resurfacing. In a recent L.A. Times article (here), it appears some interested parties are getting involved in the property…
Apelles Publishing Inc. of Abington, Va., has optioned the rights from Alten with veteran Hollywood producers Lawrence Gordon (“Die Hard”) and Lloyd Levin (“Boogie Nights”), along with Virginia-based film financing consultant Belle Avery, set to produce. Gordon and Levin have a track record of taking projects put in turnaround at one studio and successfully setting them up at another, the latest examples being “Watchmen” at Warner Bros. and “Hellboy II: The Golden Army” at Universal.
The Times piece does a fantastic job of tracking Meg‘s history, so give it a read!
