News of the World
Michael Covino (“The Climb”) has joined Paul Greengrass’ Tom Hanks-led pre-Civil War drama “News of the World” which is based on the bestselling Paulette Jiles novel. The story charts the unlikely friendship between Captain Jefferson Kyle Kidd (Hanks), an earlier precursor to today’s newscasters, and the 10-year-old girl (Helena Zengel) he is tasked with bringing to her relatives. Greengrass has re-written an earlier draft by Luke Davies (“Lion”). [Source: Deadline]

Life from the Other Side
Bradley Bredeweg will direct the Paul Schrader-scripted “Life From the Other Side” for his own Blazing Elm Entertainment label. The story follows Emily Limos, a 23-year-old Instagram influencer, and Moussa ‘Mouse’ Lafitte, a 35-year-old Algerian boxer immigrant who serves as her driver and de-facto- bodyguard. Together the pair are in a struggle to make ends meet in New York City. [Source: Deadline]

“The Good Doctor” and “Bates Motel” star Freddie Highmore will co-write and executive produce the series “Homesick” for Alfresco Pictures and TBS. The dark comedy is in development at the WarnerMedia-owned cable net and British scribe James Mitchell is co-writing the script.

Based on Mitchell’s personal experience, the story will explore mental health, body image, toxic masculinity and what it means to defy “normal” gender expectations. The show will chronicle the dysfunctional relationship between a twenty-something man who secretly suffers from an eating disorder and his mother, a narcissist and enabler who also happens to be his best friend.
