Mark Romanek Set To Direct “Septillion to One”

Mark Romanek (“Never Let Me Go,” “One Hour Photo”) has been set to direct the romantic comedy “Septillion to One” at STX Entertainment and OddLot Entertainment.

Adam R. Perlman and Graham Sack penned the spec script about an overzealous former FBI agent who has been relegated to the fraud unit of the Texas State Lottery begins investigating a beautiful and shrewd woman who had inexplicably defied all odds and hit the lottery jackpot three times.

He realizes the odds are over one in a billion for this to happen, creating a game of cat and mouse with the suspect, with whom he ultimately falls head over heels in love.

Gigi Pritzker, Tom McNulty and Linda McDonough are producing and casting is just getting underway.
