UNBROKEN En Route to The Big Screen

It appears the sticky rights situation for a film adaptation of Unbroken has been cleared. Several movie news sources are reporting that Francis Lawrence, who just finished filming Water for Elephants, is in talks to direct Laura Hillenbrand’s best seller.

Universal has been trying to produce a film about the book’s central figure, Louis Zamperini since the ’50’s, when they bought Zamperini’s “life rights” as a starring vehicle for Tony Curtis. More recently, Brad Pitt had plans to produce, with Nicolas Cage starring. No news on who may star in this incarnation.
