Ross and Jacobson Team on Cyrano de Bergerac Film


The Hunger Games duo director Gary Ross and producer Nina Jacobson’s Color Force will be teaming up again for a pitch by John Whittington.

The project, set up at New Regency, is reportedly a contemporary story centering on Cyrano de Bergerac, “a man who is in love with a woman but is forced to woo her surreptitiously on behalf of a far more handsome but less expressive suitor. The twist here is the story is told using today’s vast and complex social media tools.”

The Hollywood Reporter adds that Ross came up with the initial idea.
