Dean Parisot To Helm Houdini Feature

Dean Parisot (“RED 2”) is in early negotiations to direct the Noah Oppenheim-scripted feature about Harry Houdini which has been setup at Summit Entertainment.

The story is based on the William Kalush and Larry Sloman book “The Secret Life of Houdini” which portrays the legendary illusionist as a spy and true renaissance man.

Gary Ross (“The Hunger Games”) was previously involved, but he has since departed the project.
