Grant Boucher to write, direct 'Journies'
Jaime King attached to star in rom-comGrant Boucher will write and direct the romantic comedy feature "Journies" for Death Ray Films. Jaime King is attached to star.
"Journies" takes place in the world of online entertainment news, where an aspiring online journalist gets the scoop of a lifetime when a one-on-one interview turns into a date with Hollywood's hottest young ingenue. HBO is developing a series called "Tilda," which is also about an entertainment blogger.
Robert Sanchez, Kyle Newman and King are producing "Journies."
"It's 'Notting Hill' with a touch of 'Entourage' for the younger, hipper, Comic-Con crowd," said Death Ray partner Sanchez. "Grant's writing is amazing and his take on our story nailed it."
King, who is repped by Gersh and Raw Talent, has recently appeared in "Sin City," "The Spirit" and "My Bloody Valentine 3D." She will next star in the remake of the horror film "Mother's Day."
A visual effects producer, Boucher has worked on "Phantoms," "My Favorite Martian" and "Star Trek: Voyager."
Sanchez is an executive producer on the Lakeshore fantasy thriller "I, Frankenstein," which director Patrick Tatopoulos will start shooting in July.
