Famke Janssen Joins This Is Your Death

THR is reporting Josh Duhamel and Famke Janssen have signed on to star in Giancarlo Esposito's directorial project, the satirical drama This Is Your Death.

Esposito is an Emmy nominated actor known for his roles in Breaking Bad and the recently released The Maze Runner: The Scorch Trials. He's stepping behind the camera to direct This is Your Death, which is focused on a reality show that has contestants ending their lives for the audience’s enjoyment.

Duhamel will play Adam Rogers, a game show host who is driven to keep ratings up, and egged on by network executive Ilana Katz (Janssen). Along with helming, Esposito will star as Mason Washington, a man who is struggling to keep his family afloat.

The original script was written by Kenny Yakkel and revised by Noah Pink. Principal photography is slated to begin in Vancouver in November.

“This is Your Death is relevant at a time when people are looking to be more connected to each other, yet seem to be more connected to their cell phones, computers & TV sets," says Esposito. "It seems evident that we have outsourced our compassion and outsourced our empathy. We find ourselves riveted to our television sets, viewing the reality of our existence through a scripted vision of who we really are.”

Esposito is also producing the indie along with Lawreen Yakkel, and Dobré Films' Christopher D’Elia & Michael Klein. The film will be fully financed and produced in association with Great Point Media. Robert Halmi Jr and Jim Reeve of Great Point Media are executive producing.

ICM Partners is handling domestic rights while Great Point Media reps all rights outside of North America.

This is Your Death will be Esposito’s second foray into feature directing, following the 2007 drama Gospel Hill, which starred Esposito alongside Danny Glover, Samuel L Jackson and Angela Bassett. As an actor, his upcoming films include Jodie Foster’s Money Monster, Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book and James Franco’s The Long Home. He's repped by ICM Partners, Thruline and Jackoway Tyerman.

Duhamel's past credits include Safe Haven, New Year’s Eve and Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen. His upcoming projects include Lost in the Sun and the Hulu mini-series 11/22/66. Duhamel is repped by ICM Partners & John Carrabino Management.

Morbius: The Living Vampire Film In The Works

The Spider spin-offs keep on coming! With Venom now shooting, an even more obscure character from the web-slinger's extensive comicbook past has now been unearthed, with plans for a movie. Power Rangers writing duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are in talks to craft the script for Morbius: The Living Vampire.

Sony is pushing ahead with another potential Spider-movie, which, like Venom, is unlikely to be linked to the MCU. What it will boast, however, is the story of Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist who tries to cure a rare blood disease using an experimental treatment that combines electroshock therapy and vampire bats. The results are predictably catastrophic, and he's transformed into... well, the title should be a clue. He has some of the traditional vampiric qualities – he ingests blood to live, and conversely is not fond of bright light. He can fly, has superhuman strength and healing capabilities. When he bites victims and drinks their blood, his attac…

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See DARKEST HOUR on December 5th at 7:00 PM in Dallas

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering around his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright, DARKEST HOUR is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.
