Jackson’s Hand Rocks the Cradle

New Line and Uppity Films have acquired Josh Cagan’s spec script “Man That Rocks the Cradle” as a Samuel L. Jackson star vehicle reports Variety.

The story revolves around an overworked husband and father of four who decides the solution to all his problems is a live-in nanny. Jackson will play the nanny, Marion Delacroix, a reputed “kid whisperer” from the South.

Jackson is presently in production on the Frank Miller-directed “The Spirit” and will be seen next year in Neil LaBute’s “Lakeview Terrace,” Doug Liman’s “Jumper” and Jon Favreau’s “Iron Man.”
