Dreamworks Planning Kodachrome Film

DreamWorks has made a pre-emptive deal for Jonathan Tropper’s script pitch about the demise of Kodachrome photography reports the trades.

The deal includes the rights to a New York Times article about the closing of the last lab that processed Kodachrome film, the final nail in the coffin of the development system that was replaced by digital cameras.

The story will be turned into a narrative of a father-son road trip following the pair’s trek across the country to reach the lab and process their last remaining photos before they’re gone forever.

The film is being produced as a potential directing vehicle for Shawn Levy.
