Despite the obvious complications and setbacks to our industry currently, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we remain committed and as passionate as ever about finding new voices and new stories. With this in mind, we have been using this time to continue to read scripts from a range of writers, and we are delighted to announce that we have optioned a new script from writer Michaela Barton.

The screenplay, titled House Rules, captured our imagination with its fun approach to the world of Dungeons & Dragons role-playing and study of social dynamics, but as always with the projects we look to bring to life, this story also has a strong message at heart. In essence, this is a story about connection and how integral this is to what makes us human.

With the way the world is right now, it’s unclear when exactly we will be moving ahead with production on this particular project, but we are keen to get cracking as soon as we can, and will be keeping everyone in the loops regarding any potential opportunities in terms of casting and crew.
