Finally... Miguel Sapochnik
Miguel Sapochnik, a former runner (Trainspotting) and storyboard artist (A Life Less Ordinary), been on the cusp for so long after his much-praised short The Dreamer put him on Hollywood's radar. But after too many near misses, congrats are finally in order since it seems Sapochnik's getting a chance to parlay his promise into a movie for Universal. Jude Law and Forest Whitaker are set to star in The Repossession Mambo which, according to today's Variety, is a morality tale is set in the near future when artificial organs can be bought on credit, with the understanding that defaulting on payment will result in a fatal repossession. Eric Garcia and Garret Lerner wrote the script based on Garcia's novel. Shooting begins this summer.
