Ridley Scott’s Scott Free Productions is partnering with Radar Pictures to produce a film based on the famed Hollywood private club “The Magic Castle”. Created in 1963 and taking over a Victorian mansion, the ‘castle’ has become a Los Angeles institution where members and their guests enjoy nightly shows.
The pair are looking to go beyond just a film though, seeking to development properties across various platforms including TV and digital opportunities. Mike Weber, Ted Field, Scott and Michael Schaefer will produce.
