Samuell's upcoming children's sci-fi romp The Great Ghost Rescue.
Samuell will direct from David Solomons' adapted screenplay of Eva
Ibboston's best seller about an uprooted ghost family who go in search
of a new home.
Miriam Segal and Martin Katz will produce the live-action project,
which is styled as The Addams Family meets Beetle Juice.
'We are thrilled to be introducing this feature film the marketplace
at Berlin,' OLI's Brian O'Shea said. 'The Great Ghost Rescue is an
engaging fantasy, drenched with ghoulish humour and ghastly fun.'
Samuell is represented by CAA and attorney Robert Offer. Solomons is
handled by Elinor Burns at Casarotto Ramsay & Associates.
O'Shea is also selling the drama The Open Road, which will star Jeff
Bridges, Justin Timberlake, Mary Steenbergen and latest cast addition
Kate Mara. The slate include The Spirit, which is currently in
post-production, as well as the spoof disaster film Armageddagain.
