Adam Shankman in Talks to Direct 'The Nutcracker'
The New Line film will be based on the classic E.T.A. Hoffmann story.
Adam Shankman is in talks to direct the big-screen adaptation of The Nutcracker for New Line.
Darren Lemke (Jack the Giant Killer) is writing the project, which Marty Bowen and Wyck Godfrey of Temple Hill Entertainment are producing.
The film is based on the classic E.T.A. Hoffmann story The Nutcracker and the Mouse King, about a girl whose Christmas toy comes alive. It inspired the perennial ballet.
The UTA-repped Shankman has an adaptation of the musical Rock of Ages hitting theaters in June for New Line. He also produced Going the Distance and 17 Again for the company, and directed Hairspray in 2007.
