DIRECTOR PICTURES NEW DORIAN
Variety reports that Bauer Martinez Studios is preparing to shoot DORIAN, a modern-day supernatural thriller that updates Oscar Wilde's classic THE PICTURE OF DORIAN GRAY. Mick Davis, who recently directed MODIGLIANI starring Andy Garcia, will take the helm of this project for producers Philippe Martinez and Alan Latham; the filmmaker is hoping to get Ryan Phillippe to star, but no deal has been signed yet. The $15-million production will roll in October in Romania and London. Wilde's story of a man who makes a Faustian deal to stay youthful-looking while his portrait ages has inspired numerous previous films, most recently the direct-to-video PACT WITH THE DEVIL starring Malcolm McDowell.
