Marc Forster Smells The Roses

Director Marc Forster (“Monster’s Ball,” “Finding Neverland”) will executive produce and develop the drama “Land of Roses” as a potential directing vehicle says The Hollywood Reporter.

Inspired by the real-life experiences of Kurdish immigrant Ibrahim Parlak in post-Sept. 11 America, the story line follows a suburban mother who, with the support of her fellow outraged townspeople, attempts to exonerate a hardworking Middle Eastern father falsely imprisoned as a terrorist by Homeland Security.

Albert Torres will pen the screenplay. Forster recently wrapped “The Kite Runner” film adaptation and is scheduled to direct the next James Bond film which begins shooting in January.
