Rob Reiner takes refuge in 'Shadows'

Zoe Green's pitch evolved from Castle Rock principal's idea

Castle Rock has picked up "Book of Shadows," an action-adventure pitch from Zoe Green that will act as a directing vehicle for principal Rob Reiner.

The story follows a young man who must embark on the perilous journey of first love and face many trials of maturity while on the dangerous quest to close a mythical tome called "Book of Shadows" in order to restore balance to the world.

Reiner was in a general meeting with Green and told her of an idea on which he had been working. Green picked up on that and ran with it, fleshing it out.

Reiner will produce with Alan Greisman and Ron Casdan.

Castle Rock president Liz Glotzer and chairman Martin Schafer brought "Shadows" into the company, which has a first-look deal at Warner Bros. and finances its own development.

Reiner is repped by CAA. Green is with UTA and Energy Entertainment.
