David O. Russell Climbs A Hill

David O. Russell (“Three Kings,” “I Heart Huckabees”) is adapting and is attached to direct the subversive Washington comedy “Sammy’s Hill” for Sony Pictures and Red Wagon says The Hollywood Reporter.

The project, based on Kristin Gore’s inside-the-Beltway novel, centers on a young woman who tries to balance a job as a congressional aide on Capitol Hill while searching for the right guy.

Gore is the daughter of former Vice President Al Gore. Russell is working closely with Kristin Gore, Dave Jeser and Matt Silverstein on the screenplay.
