'Fracture' helmer boards Castle Rock drama

Gregory Hoblit to direct, produce Frank Baldwin film

Gregory Hoblit will direct and produce an untitled Castle Rock drama written by Frank Baldwin.

Hoblit helmed Castle Rock's "Fracture," which New Line released in 2007. In the new project, an au pair, a reformed Harlem drug dealer, three Princeton graduates and a ruthless Chilean drug lord cross paths after a kilo of cocaine is stolen.

Castle Rock president Liz Glotzer is overseeing for the company.

Repped by WME and Benderspink, Hoblit also directed the features "Frequency," "Primal Fear," "Hart's War," "Untraceable" and "Fallen" as well as episodes of "NYPD Blue" and "L.A. Law." He is developing the graphic novel "Pencilneck," written by Victor Carungi.

Repped by WME and Leverage Management, Baldwin landed his script "When Corruption Was King" on last year's unofficial Black List of most-liked screenplays. That project is with Temple Hill Entertainment.

He also has adaptations of two true-crime stories, "The Art of Making Money" and "Tokyo Underworld," in development at Paramount.

Castle Rock has the Rob Reiner-directed "Flipped" hitting theaters in September through Warner Bros. and the action film "Faster" set for release by CBS Films in November.
