King’s Speech Scribe Sets Two Projects

Oscar-winning “The King’s Speech” scribe David Seidler has been keeping busy lately and has just scored two new jobs according to Variety.

First up he will rewrite the family drama “The Judge” about a big-city lawyer who returns home after the death of his mother to learn that his estranged father, a judge, is suspected of murder.

He then sets out to discover the truth and along the way reconnects with the family he walked away from years before.

Robert Downey Jr. and Susan Downey will produce. David Dobkin is attached to produce and direct.

Seidler is also attached to pen the sports drama “Games of 1940”, about how a group of POWs in a Nazi concentration camp staged an Olympics-like competition after the 1940 Games were canceled.
